Mezuzah and Believers

As Believers in the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus Christ we are bombarded daily by the world and it’s self centered and evil ways, so going back to Torah and following G‑d’s commandments helps us stay on track. We as believers are Grafted in to Yisra’el, not a replacement, but now children of the Most High G‑d. (Romans 11:11-31)
