Is it okay to kick others when they are down or experiencing judgment, even if they are our enemies? Should we laugh and point fingers at those who have been harmed, or scorn those who have fallen in the midst of their sins? It is tempting to say “Aha, our eyes have seen it” like in Psalms 35, when someone we don’t like or don’t understand has to face certain trials due to their own actions. But I come here to warn you that when we gloat amongst others during their time of adversity, we are opening a door for our own times of trial to come forth as well.

17 Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, 18 or the LORD will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.

Proverbs 24:17-18 NIV

I created this video as a way for us to reflect upon our words and actions towards others when we see them going through adversity. Believe it or not, the LORD takes into account every idle word we speak to one another, so it is important to show love and compassion for others during their time of need, even if those very people are our enemies.

Oftentimes, the spirit of lust is seen as a prevailing spirit that creeps in through sexual immorality and perversion. And indeed, lust has driven many of us into unnerving battles with sexual sin. However, as the LORD has led me to study the spirit of lust for deeper understanding, He has revealed that it is much more than just sexual sin—it is also an underlying seed that evolves into other spiritual sins.
