To my dearly beloved brethren of the Holiness movement entertaining the posttpillennial view of our Lord's second coming, I have but one apology for writing these appeals. This you will find in 2 Cor. 5:14, "For the divine love of Christ constraineth us."
We have two Greek words translated love, agapee which means divine love and pkilia, human love. They are both affirmed of our glorious Christ, who is perfect God and perfect man. ,But in this passage it is affirmed of His divinity, as this agapee is really the divine nafore (1 John 4 ch.), and not indigenous in the human heart, but an exotic from heaven, dispensed by the Holy Ghost, (Rom. 5:5) "The di vine love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Ghost who has been given unto us."
