“For He Had Gone from Before My Presence”

W. Cleon Skousen

These verses are very significant. Nephi says he knew he was talking to the Spirit of the Lord and he was in the form of a man. No other prophet speaks of seeing the Holy Ghost or Spirit of the Lord as a man. But no sooner did Nephi realize what a great privilege was being granted to him when the Spirit of the Lord vanished.
