Salvation is for all and that all Israel will be saved and not replaced.
We recognize the high holy days as His appointed times for all His people who walk in His ways, and not solely for those born Jewish. We go by the calendar dates from Israel concerning His Holy Days, desiring not to argue and to “avoid foolish controversies … and strife and disputes about the Torah,” which are “unprofitable and worthless” (Titus 3:9). We agree that the responsibility of determining the calendar does not fall to us; it falls to the established and recognized leadership of the entire nation of Israel. In the days of the exodus, that was Moses and Aaron.
