Yes I believe in the covenant of Jesus and yes it is eternal in the sense of God knowing it from the foundation of the world (cf. Eph. 3:11; 2 Tim. 1:9).

Bot here:
I am glad that we are one in this view. I am glad that you believe the ETERNAL COVENANT of Jesus. I am glad that you know that God foreknew it before the foundation of the world.

You asked:
When did the NEW COVENANT come in force? Was it at creation, at Sinai, at the cross? Please answer this question!

Your answer to your own question:
But it was not made with ANYONE until Jesus came and died on the tree? Jeremiah looked forward to it in 31:31ff. Do you believe a covenant is in force only after one dies or before(Heb. 9:16, 17)?

Bot here:
I observed that I have no problem with it since you already answered your own question. And I would like to tell you that I agree with you.

Then If you will write again to everybody to distance from me and not to hear my teachings then you are actually hindering them to your own teachings.

You wrote:
Now, to the direct point of controversy, do you believe that if a man divorces his wife for any other reason than fornication (a sexual violation of the marriage bed) and marries another that he is in a state of adultery and remains so until he puts and end to that union? Don't dodge the issue because I do not have the time or patience for anyone who wants to.

Bot here:
What you consider CONTROVERSY in America is not applicable here in the Philippines. It has no bearing here since we have no divorce according to our FAMILY CODE.
