(NKJV Strong’s) “…and be sure your sin will find you out.”
The children of Israel were warned by Moses that when they lose in battle, look to sin as the first place to look.
I’ll return to this in a moment.
According to Wikipedia, he was born to Jewish parents.
I quote “Epstein was born in 1953, in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, to Jewish parents Pauline (née Stolofsky, 1918–2004) and Seymour G. Epstein (1916–1991). His parents were married in 1952, shortly before his birth.”
Epstein was arrested for sex trafficking. This of course, was connected to his past arrest for under aged prostitution.
Sex with minors.
When you see money and professional positions of power, it’s inextricably connected to empowerment, entitlement, elitism, and finally expediency.
These are common traits among the people with power and money.
In every profession.
From spiritual to other places of power where men and women are, the temptation to egregiously take advantage of people is great.
While this is still under investigation, so far, unless otherwise noted, suicide may be the cause of death.
But it all comes to an end, one way or another.
Facing 45 years at age 66. Do the math.
Or commit what will happen inevitably.
The females that were allegedly abused by Epstein and others, came forward, and that’s all they needed.
I don’t intend to engage or entertain conspiracy theories.
That’s not the point.
But when accusation of sexual immorality come forward and investigations uncover layers of sexual sins, and their potential participants, it’s just a matter of time before something comes to a head.
Sadly, this is the thing that is out in the open with people in high places.
But we all know that the not so powerful, rich, and famous, engage in the same activity.
Just look in your quiet neighborhoods, urban and suburban neighborhoods.
Is it as you think it is, or is it just too quiet.
Millions of young girls, under aged, are sexually exploited. Trafficked to far away places or local places under the nose of ordinary people.
Amber alerts, child kidnapping. Drive by kidnapping.
Or perhaps, for the money to engage in financing your drugs, you “do work.”
Thousands are taken away from families and pimped.
Just imagine your daughter is kidnapped and is sexually violated for years.
The death of Epstein ought to be a beacon to send the signal that human trafficking is taking place even as we speak.
Someone’s daughter is being kidnapped and raped by sex craved men.
Somewhere, a man is tired of porn and masturbation, and want to take things to the next level.
More than ever, we need the Lord.
However, man will not come to the Lord.
In sin, they drown and more daughters will be abused.
Epstein’s sin found him out, before his suicide.
Just imagine if Jeffrey Epstein found grace in the eyes of God instead of suicide?
And before the end of the day, worldwide, 155,000 will lose their lives.
Will sin find you out?
The children if Israel sinned on numerous occasions, and sin found them out.
And finally, they were exiled for 70 years in Babylon as punishment for their sin.
The pattern is clear to us as well. If we have sin in our lives, it will find us out. And when it does, the penalty or severity of the penalty will come upon us.
Suicide is not the penalty or severity of the penalty.
Epstein skirted human judgment but will not skirt eternal judgment.
Epstein committed suicide for whatever reason, but for years, he seemed to have skirted judgment.
Many will say he deserved hell for what he’s done.
“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ or Lord.”
IF we’re not saved, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
We all deserve hell. But thank God that He sent Jesus to die for our sins, paid our penalty, and gives us eternal life. That is if we repent, and ask the Lord for forgiveness.
So before any of us become so quick to wish the pit of hell for Epstein and others, we need to take a close look at ourselves. Because everyone of us deserve hell, and the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.
