No. the verb Natsar (נצר) is a literary term which is not used as a noun. It has a strong connotation of maintenance, since it refers to guarding the condition of something.

"Watchmen" would be shomrim (שומרים), which refer to people who guard places or people.

Notsrim refers to Christians, and is a relatively modern Hebrew word, that comes from the word "Natseret" which means "Nazareth". The root of Natseret is also Natsar (נצר), but this root comes from the word for "shoot" or "stem."

They would be called Christians or Notsrim (נוצרים) in Hebrew (literally "Nazerenes"). Notsrim is the proper term for Christians in Hebrew. If you are specifically looking for the term "Messianic Jew" it is "Yehudi Meshikhi" (יהודי משיחי). It is important to note that most Israelis and Jews in general see Messianic Jews to be Christians anyway.
