It is as Isaiah predicted, If Almighty Yahuwah of hosts had not left us a seed from which to propagate descendants, we Israel would have fared like Sodom and have been made like Gomorrah. [Isa. 1:9.]
What shall we say then? That Gentiles who did not follow after righteousness who did not seek salvation by right relationship to Almighty Yahuwah have attained it by faith a righteousness imputed by Almighty Yahuwah, based on and produced by faith, whereas Israel, though ever in pursuit of a law for the securing of righteousness (right standing with Almighty Yahuwah), actually did not succeed in fulfilling the Law. [Isa. 51:1.]
For what reason? Because they pursued it not through faith, relying instead on the merit of their works they did not depend on faith but on what they could do. They have stumbled over the Stumbling Stone. [Isa. 8:14; 28:16.]
As it is written, Behold I am laying in Zion a Stone that will make men stumble, a Rock even Yahushua Messiah that will make them fall; but he who believes in Him who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him shall not be put to shame nor be disappointed in his expectations. [Isa. 28:16.] End of quote.
Dear Reader, I hope the above lines impressed you as they impress me every time I read them. I find them to be so much clear as we advance in our civilization.

Will continue this issue when I resolve backup problems with the site. I am back. Have to figure out yet what’s the problem with the backup. Father? I know You will show it to me as You show me all things whether I can figure them out or not.
