Persistent message in the echo area?

    I'm using emacs 25.1.

    I know that I can send a message to the echo area via (message "Message text"). However, that message disappears whenever buffers are switched or other similar changes take place during my emacs session.

    I assume that this is because various internal emacs functions sometimes do the equivalent of (message nil).

    Is there a way to send a message to the echo area and have it always persist until I explicitly remove it?
