What is a Torah Observant Believer in Yeshua?

The Hebrew word “shomer” means “keeper of” or to be “observant”; the Hebrew word “mitzvot” is the plural form of the word “mitzvah” meaning “command”; thus, “shomer mitzvot” means “keeper of the commands”, or more properly “Torah observant”. What this means is that a “Torah observant” person keeps the commands of the books of Moshe (Moses), as well as what is in the Brit Chadashah (New Testament). The “Torah observant” individual uses the Names of the Father and The Son (YHWH, Yahushua, or a form of them – Isaiah 52:6; Revelation 14:1), keeps the sabbath (Exodus 20:10), eats kosher food (clean, fit, or proper – Leviticus 11), keeps the Moedim (moe-eh-DEEM – “Appointed Times” – Leviticus 23), and wears tzitzit (fringes/tassels – Numbers 15:38).
