Jews, Christians, or Jewish-Christians, who emphasize using the Hebrew name of Deity: "Yahweh".
Yahwists like to point out this verse to their Jewish and Christian friends:

ISAIAH 65:11,

You are those who forsake YAHWEH,
who forget My holy mountain,
who prepare a table for __________* (deity of FORTUNE),
and who furnish a drink offering for Meni (deity of DESTINY),

*You NEED to read this name as written in the ORIGINAL, Hebrew version of Isaiah.

Jewish-Christians who not only worship Yahweh, but, make a point of actually referring to Him by His real name "Yahweh" rather than a substitute such as "God" (Gad).

Yahwists also refer to the Messiah (commonly called "Jesus") as Yahshua.

Yahwists usually eat only kosher meats, observe the weekly sabbath and seven annual sabbaths.
The seal of yahweh certainly seems to apply to Yahwists!
