JEFFREY EPSTEIN AND THE WORLDWIDE EVIL OF CHILD SACRIFICES!!! Part One of Two
“Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molek is to be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people; for by sacrificing his children to Molek, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molek and if they fail to put him to death, I myself will set my face against him and his family and will cut them off from their people together with all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molek.’” Leviticus 20:2-5
Jeffrey Epstein, the personification of evil. While the nation and much of the world has been captivated with the resurgence of the case against convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein since his arrest at New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport on July 8th, this heinous tale took another huge twist this past Saturday as Epstein was found dead in his cell at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center.
For context, I must deal with some of the history and issues at play in the Epstein saga. There are volumes and volumes of global reporting on this matter available, and due to the issues, people, and events involved, that reporting will continue far into the foreseeable future. My goal today is to use this very evil story to shine a bright light on a much larger global evil that most of the world is ignorant of because it rarely sees the light of day and is discussed.
The Epstein case broke into the public view back in March of 2005 with a Florida police investigation of sexual battery following accusations he was paying female minors for sex. It remained a local prosecution in Palm Beach, Florida where Epstein had a large residence. A grand jury eventually handed down a single count of solicitation of prostitution in June of 2006.
A month later, the FBI opened a federal investigation on Epstein that involved multiple accusers in various states, including New York. In June 2008, Epstein pled guilty to a state charge of one count of solicitation of prostitution and one count of solicitation of prostitution of a minor under the age of 18. Epstein was given a sentence of 18 months in jail plus a year of community service and required to register as a sex offender.
In October of 2008, Epstein began to serve his sentence at the Palm Beach County jail and is placed in a work release program. He is picked up by his private driver six days a week and transported to his office in West Palm Beach, where he accepted visitors for up to 12 hours a day. He returned to the Palm Beach county jail in the evenings to sleep. Epstein was released 5 months early for “good behavior” on July 7, 2009 after just 13-months.
Fast forward to September 2009 and details of Epstein's plea deal were made public. That occurred because there were at least a dozen civil lawsuits filed by women who alleged they were molested by Epstein when they were underage. In February of this year, the DOJ opened an investigation into the federal prosecutors' handling of Epstein’s sweetheart plea deal.
On this past July 2nd, a sealed indictment was filed charging Epstein with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in the sex trafficking of minors. The conspiracy count is important since it means there were others involved with Epstein’s involvement in having sex with underage girls. On July 8th, Epstein was arrested at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, a private aviation facility, as he was returning to the country from France.
Jeffrey Epstein is somewhat of an enigma and many unanswered questions exist to this day. With his death this past Saturday, some of those questions may never be answered. He is described as a billionaire, though unlike most billionaires, there was never a clear picture of where all of his money came from. During the state case in the early 2000’s, the news reporting stated Epstein owned a mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, a huge town home in Manhattan, a large ranch in New Mexico, and a residence in Paris.
Perhaps the best known property Epstein owned was a private Island in the US Virgin Islands that became known as “pedophile island.” He also owned a private jet that became infamously dubbed by the press the “Lolita express.” While these are clever names for his island and jet, the fact is Epstein was involved in purely evil activities that destroyed many lives, mostly of young girls before they even had a chance to have a life!
The fact is, Epstein wasn’t involved in this perversion alone. Not only were there people within his inner circle who worked for Epstein, but throughout the years he kept company with Presidents, past and current, titans of the tech industry, corporate CEO’s and major players on Wall Street, world renowned scientists, as well as royalty and other bluebloods from around the world. Epstein’s world encompassed elites and other worldwide high profile individuals from all walks of life.
Just last Friday, the day before Epstein was found dead in his jail cell, an initial tranche of 2,000 sealed court documents from a civil case was released to the public, with more being released in the near future. Names affiliated in some way with Epstein included current President Donald Trump who was listed as taking a single flight on Epstein’s airplane in 1997 from Palm Beach to Newark, former astronaut and Democratic Senator John Glenn, former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres, and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz who represented Epstein in various legal actions.
The civil suit was brought by a woman who at the time was a minor, stated at Epstein’s behest she engaged in sex with Prince Andrew of Britain, former Democratic Senate Leader George Mitchell, a Maine Democrat, former Democratic New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, hedge funder Glenn Dubin, late MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, modeling company founder Jean Luc-Brunel, the owner of large hotel chain, and another prince. Former President Bill Clinton has also been predominantly linked to Epstein via several dozen trips on his private jet as well as 6 known visits to his private island.
*IT IS CRITICAL TO NOTE THAT WHILE THESE ALLEGATIONS WERE MADE IN THE COURSE OF A CIVIL LAWSUIT AGAINST EPSTEIN, ALL OF THESE PEOPLE NAMED HAVE DENIED THEY ENGAGED IN ANY SEXUAL ACTS WITH A MINOR AND NOT ONE OF THESE PEOPLE HAS EVER BEEN PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW TO HAVE DONE ANYTHING ILLEGAL.
Jeffrey Epstein was born on January 20, 1953 and raised in Brooklyn, New York. In his early 20's, he taught physics and math at Manhattan's elite K-12 Dalton School despite never finishing college. In 1976 he joined the Wall Street investment firm Bear Stearns and eventually was made a limited partner before he decided to leave in 1981 to start his own firm.
It is at this time the picture becomes murky since over the next 24 years until he resurfaces in the initial Palm Beach investigation, Epstein had acquired hundreds of millions of dollars of assets.
OK, now that you have a basic picture of Epstein, let me deal with some of these issues where there are more questions than answers. First is the source of his wealth. With his death, I am certain the Feds will begin putting together this puzzle and reverse engineering where his finances came from. It seems that virtually all of Epstein’s wealth came via one man named Leslie H. Wexner. Wexner is the billionaire CEO of L-Brands based in Columbus, Ohio. L-Brands is the parent company of Victoria’s Secret.
Over the last 20 years of the 1900’s and into the first years of the 2000’s, Wexner literally signed over total control of his business empire to Epstein for reasons nobody has been able to explan. Epstein had the power of attorney to sign tax returns, make deals, borrow money, and do virtually anything he wanted with Wexner’s billions. No doubt some of Epstein’s fortune came from whatever compensation he received for serving in this unique capacity.
Also it wouldn’t take a financial genius to make incredible amounts of money simply piggy-backing various deals Wexner was involved in. There are some unverified allegations that Epstein may have misappropriated tens of millions of dollars from Wexler. Needless to say, Epstein either personally had or personally had access to incredible amounts of money in the 80’s, 90’s and the first years of the 2000’s via Wexler.
The next issue that is being investigated is how did Epstein get the sweetheart plea deal from the Feds and State of Florida that he received back in 2008? There is really only one legitimate answer and it was stated by than US Attorney in charge of the Southern District of Florida and eventual Trump Department of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. He told the White House vetting team as he was being considered for the cabinet post that the Epstein plea deal was out of his hands. Acosta stated the deal came from main justice in DC, and he was told “Epstein belongs to intelligence, leave it alone.”
That really does make the only sense for such a plea deal for those types of charges. The question of course is was he US intel, foreign intel, or both. There is a good case to be made that Epstein was an Israeli intelligence (Mossad) asset. First he is Jewish. Second, his former girlfriend and the main person in charge of procuring underage girls for sex was Ghislaine Maxwell.
Maxwell is a British socialite and the youngest child of publishing tycoon and fraudster Robert Maxwell. Early in his life, Maxwell escaped from Nazi occupation, joined the Czechoslovak Army in exile in World War II, and was decorated after active service in the British Army. Maxwell's service to the Israeli state in 1948 was crucial to the Czechoslovak decision to arm Israel in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.
Maxwell had known links to the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), to the KGB, and to the Israeli intelligence service Mossad. Six serving and former heads of Israeli intelligence services attended Maxwell's funeral in Israel in 1991. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir eulogized him and stated: “He has done more for Israel than can today be said.”
Epstein’s close relationship with Maxwell is why it is very possible Epstein was an Israeli intel asset, though he could have also been used by the CIA. The reason is simple. Epstein was in the world of sex trafficking minors and pedophilia. As we have discussed , the circle of people he was involved with were elites from all walks of life from around the world. It only makes sense that some of these people, possibly many of these people, were also involved in pedophilia. Spy agencies around the world would love to have such documented acts of sexual deviancy in their files should at some point one of those individuals comes up on their radar in other matters.
The other mystery that became part of the Epstein saga occurred last Saturday when he was found dead in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. The MCC is a holding facility for people involved in federal crimes. He was being held there pending his trial on the July federal indictment, since he was denied bond due to the fact he was clearly a flight risk.
Over nearly 30 yrs of public ministry, 20 yrs of Liveprayer and 15 yrs of Liveprayer TV, I have shared my personal testimony of God’s grace in my life with literally tens of millions worldwide via TV, radio, print, personal appearances, and online. There are numerous places on the Liveprayer.com website where you can access it. 30 years ago I was involved in an insider trading case in Chicago. I was held without bond at the Chicago Metropolitan Correctional Center. The one in New York City is virtually identical.
Epstein was being held in a special housing unit where he was locked down 23 hours a day. It is a unit where people who are a discipline problem in general population are taken as a form of punishment. It is also a place where high profile detainees are housed for their protection (I know, how ironic). This is the unit where Bernie Madoff, John Gotti, and recently El Chapo were housed.
That unit is NOT where a person who is on suicide watch is housed. A person on suicide watch is kept in a special unit in the prison infirmary where they are put into a cell with nothing they could remotely use to harm themselves. They wear a paper smock. There is a camera in that cell that is monitored 24/7. This is where Epstein would have been taken after what was deemed a failed suicide attempt several weeks ago. According to reports, he was removed from that special unit and put back into the special housing unit, a decision that could have only been made by the prison psychiatrist and warden’s office.
I was never in that special housing unit during my 6 months at the MCC in Chicago prior to pleading guilty and being assigned to a Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola, Florida where I served out the balance of my sentence. However, I can tell you that it is not difficult at all to take your life, even in that unit, if that is your goal. That is not even taking into account potential incompetence and failure to follow prison protocols by the guards.
Suicide in prison is VERY COMMON. Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez took his life in a Mass. State prison a few years ago by hanging himself. A bedsheet tightly wrapped around your neck that allows you to be suspended even a few inches off the floor will kill you in apx. 5 minutes. You will lose consciousness in about 2 minutes and be dead within another 3-4 minutes.
I am very aware of the various conspiracy theories that are out there. Some say Epstein is really not dead but he was switched out and whisked out of the country. Obviously, due to the powerful people he most likely had life-changing compromising evidence on, many believe he as actually murdered. If an intel agency killed him, that could have easily been done by food poisoning. While all of those theories are interesting, the official record that he killed himself by hanging really does make the most sense.
This is an evil man. He knew he was never going to get out of prison. Despite whatever information he may have had on any number of powerful people, it seems obvious he used whatever connections he had in 2008 to facilitate that sweetheart deal. It would be logical that he was no longer worth whatever intel he could provide after his sexual deviancy became public, and thus he had nothing to bargain with to ever see the light of day again. People like Epstein are the cowards, and as I have shared often over the years, suicide is an act of cowardice. Along with adultery, it is a totally selfish act.
Sadly, there is a gross distrust of our government that has only been heightened over the past 3 years. Facts are coming out now regarding the collusion between the Obama White House, FBI, DOJ, and Intel community, in illegally surveilling US citizens dating back to the very beginning of the that administration. Documents now being released show that there was a major cover-up of the numerous crimes committed by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her inner circle.
Protecting these illegal activities became the reason for the bogus “Russian hoax” when President Trump did what few people expected and won the 2016 election. All of these activities coming to light has only made people less willing to believe the government when it comes to cases like Epstein’s.
Unfortunately, Epstein evil activities and death will end up being the fodder for conspiracy theories like the JKF assassination, those who believe our government actually took down the twin towers on 9/11, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and the Hoover's FBI illegal surveillance of Dr. Martin Luther King and details surrounding his assassination to name a few. That is really sad, but the reality is such distrust has been earned!
I love you and care about you so much. Now that I have given you the framework of the Epstein saga and the facts as they are known, in Part Two tomorrow I will deal with the Biblical teachings on child sacrifices and use the Epstein case to highlight a worldwide evil that exists today just as it has since very early on in the history of man. It is a horrible evil that churches rarely deal with and most people don’t think or talk about since it is rarely seen in such a clear, visible, and high profile way.
Jesus said in Luke 8:17, “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.”
