What is a Stumbling Block? It's called stone of stumbling or rock of offense and it keeps you from walking the right path, or getting where you should be going. .
Ro 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
1Co 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
Rom 9:33 As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
The stumbling blocks come in two groups, one a set of ideas, perhaps mental strongholds. The other is a set of attitudes. Any one of these can provide a major stumbling block keeping one from receiving revelation knowledge and moving on toward maturity.
Another interesting reference stumbling blocks is in Isaiah 57. Here it talks about the stumbling block being removed and mentions revival to come to those who are humble and contrite. [Those who have repented.] So stumbling blocks stand in the way of maturity, and of revival!
Isa 57:14 And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.
15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
