SCRIPTURAL UNDERSTANDING:- Romans 9:29-33 And as Isaiah said before, “If Yahuah of Armies had not left us a seed (Yahusha), we would have become like Sodom, and we would have been made like Gomorra.” What shall we say then? That nations not following after righteousness, have obtained righteousness, even the righteousness of belief, but Yisharal following after the Torah of righteousness, has not arrived at the Torah of righteousness (they have shadow mixture). Why? because it was not a belief, but as by works of Torah, for they stumbled at the stone of stumbling (Yahusha). As it has been written, "See I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling, and everyone who is believing on Him shall not be put to shame.”

We can see that the stumbling block for the nations is idolatry mixed with scripture, everyone is controlled by the evil one except those who choose to believe in the deliverance of Yahusha, as he conquered all of Satan’s armies and weapons, even death. the greatest stumbling block to mankind is the truth of Yahusha, which man can live by and overcome the wiles of Satan. If mankind rejects Yahusha, he will suffer greatly.
