Meet The CEO of Elite Airways
Took his very first airplane ride in Vero Beach at age 13! 6
June 2021 / ISSUE 125 / Vero’s Voice
Rhett Palmer: We’re very honored to have the CEO of Elite Airways this morning.
John Pearsall: Thank you.
o we hear you have breaking news for us. What is it? The City of Vero Beach has received authorization to upgrade their runway, the main runway here in Vero, which is really nice. And so with that, they notified us that the main runway will be closed from September through probably February. The smaller runways for smaller airplanes and things like that, that’s not a problem. We know how important our service is to Newark and Maine, so we’re going to operate up until September 6th out of Vero Beach, and then temporarily we will move our service from Vero Beach up to Melbourne, which is the closest place that we can take care of our passengers from Vero and the surrounding areas. After September 6th, we’ll start with Newark on the same days and times that it is right now out of Vero, and then as soon as we get notified by the airport here that the runway construction will be done, we will re-establish the schedule out of Vero Beach. So I want to assure all of our customers, who we absolutely appreciate, that Elite will be back in the spring, and we tentatively think it will be in time for March. We’re hoping that will be the case. Melbourne is a nice little airport. I like West Palm, too, and my least favorite, of course, is Orlando. But there’s nothing like getting on Elite. It’s really nice to take off and land back in Vero. I have a little bit more to this story actually. We’re getting ready to announce the new White Plains service from Vero Beach, which we’ve had a lot of customers ask for. We will be starting Melbourne up to White Plains on July 1st. We have also already announced service from White Plains to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Do we have enough people to warrant that? There’s an enormous amount of travel between the northeast and those islands, especially Nantucket. Do you fly direct from here into Nantucket, or do you stop in Newark? We stop in White Plains. And you don’t have to get off the plane either, right? No, you don’t have to get off the plane.
Elite Airways will soon provide service from White Plains to Nantucket.
So I want to know about you. How did you become a captain and then start your own airline? Why shoulder all this responsibility? That’s a good question! I flew overseas many years, all over the world for various people, and then went back to an airline, of which I could have been part of when it first started, which was America West Airlines. And there at America West, speaking with the CEO who I knew at the time, Mike Conway, he was thinking about starting another carrier, which was National Airlines, which would have been National Airlines II, which everyone remembers the old National Airlines from Miami. And I said, “Yes, I’d love to go.” So I was part of the startup team for that airline out of Las Vegas in 1998.
We had almost twenty 757’s and nonstop service to New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Seattle, Rhett Palmer San Francisco. It did really well until 9/11. 9/11 really killed the cash flow for a lot of airlines, and even though there was some government assistance, it just wasn’t enough to help us out. There’s got to be huge payments on those multimillion-dollar jets. Oh, absolutely. And so the carrier did go out of business back in 2003. So with that, I thought, well, where’s our next opportunity? I thought, well, okay, I’ve been part of the startup team, excellent interface with the government and the FAA, and I thought maybe I can find another market that would work out well. And so that’s how Elite came to fruition. A lot of people like our service. In fact, after March we’ll probably be introducing a first class service. As you know, right now we’re all coach service, but we do have actually some pretty decent legroom there. Yes, you do, because I’m six foot three, and I’m fine. Any chance of Bar Harbor again? There is a possibility of Bar Harbor. People liked that service, and we’ve been thinking about bringing it back. Do you get that many people going to Bar Harbor? Believe it or not, yes. If you recall, we stopped in Newark and picked up other passengers.

Well, listen, if you want to go up there, always liked to do road trips, and one of our obviously we have service to Portland, and it’s first trips to Florida, guess where we came… not that far. Vero Beach. It’s a nice drive from Portland. So when do the Melbourne flights start? Really? So I absolutely bugged the living daylights out of my father. I said, “Look, Dad, So the first thing that happens at Melbourne is on July 1st to White Plains. September 6th is our take a look, they have these airplanes here, they make these airplanes here, let’s go for a ride.” last flight out of Vero, while they do the runway improvements. You were smitten. I was, yes. It was my first ride, right here in Vero Beach. So right now if anybody wants to fly Elite, they’re going to be able to fly from Vero, and that will continue until Really? Absolutely true. September? That’s correct. Isn’t that a cool story! I think that’s really cool that the captain and the Melbourne is the alternative option owner and CEO of Elite took your very while they’re building the new first flight in a plane right here in runway, and that will be for a period Vero Beach, Florida, as a kid. That’s a of how long? We think it’s five months. great story. I’ll never forget the day. We do want to make a point that Melbourne is very convenient. Not only is it close, but from the point that you park and go through the TSA experience, check-in, it’s very quick also. It’s like Vero. A little bit bigger, but it’s nothing like Orlando. So please support the service, and we will be back in the spring. Which exit is the best exit to take off I-95? Don’t they have a new exit that’s a little closer? They have a brand new Melbourne Airport exit. What it does is, it brings you off onto Ellis Road, which becomes NASA Boulevard, right into the airport. It’s very convenient. So you go above the 192 exit? Correct. Brand new exit. So let’s go back to your beginnings. Did your dad fly? Who influenced you? Here is the ironic story. I grew up on the Jersey Shore, Point Pleasant Beach. My folks
Does she spend most of her time in Portland or here? The majority of our time we spend down here. We spend the summers up in Portland. She loves it down here. Do you live right in Portland? We live on an island outside of Portland. There are tons of islands out there. They have ferry service. What if there’s a medical emergency, will the Coast Guard come get you pretty quick? Usually every one of the islands has a rescue boat that will take you out, or a helicopter if there’s an issue. But they have some great EMTs on those islands.
Well, thank you, John Pearsall for coming in. You’re such an asset to our community, so thank you for all you’re doing, and we wish you continued success. Thank you, Rhett. How old were you? I think I was 13. And we want to thank the customers of Vero Beach and the surrounding areas who’ve been ut to think that that child, what he thought, that now you absolutely terrific in supporting us. I want you to know that we’re staying, and as soon as the can get on a plane anytime runway is done, we’ll be back in the spring. you want, you’ve got 50-70 Please support us going out of Melbourne. people’s lives in your hands and you’re able to fly that thing.

FATHER’S DAY L
ast month we celebrated Mother’s Day and this month we are celebrating Father’s Day. I happen to be a father of two children, a lively 4-year-old, and a beautiful 13-year-old. Being a dad is one of the greatest gifts that God has entrusted me with. It is a wonderful privilege for me to raise two precious children. Being a dad has taught me many things and at the same time has helped me to understand God’s heart so much more. I have tried my best as a dad to make sure that my kids know I will always protect them to the best of my ability. I endeavor to spend as much time with them as I possibly can, so that they know how important they are to me. I do my best to affirm them by telling them constantly that I love them and that they are amazing, and that I am so proud of them. I always try to be fair. I discipline them. They know without a doubt

that their dad loves them so much, but at the same time when dad disciplines, they tread very cautiously and know that they have to straighten up. Most importantly, I lead my home in the ways of the Lord. I want my children to not only hear about Jesus from me, but to see Jesus in me. Please don’t misunderstand me, I am by no means a perfect dad. I often fail hopelessly, but I honestly do try my best. And you know what? My children know that. Being a father has taught me so much about God the Father. I have come to the realization that if I feel the way I do about my children, how much more does God feel this way about me. He is the perfect Father full of love, mercy, grace and compassion. He also disciplines those that He loves, always with a loving heart. The one thing I want to do as a father is show love to my kids, because I know that God’s love
“Love your kids with all of your heart, not just in word but also in action.” gives me all the strength and affirmation that I need, enabling me to do so much in this life. encourage every single dad reading this article today…love your kids with all of your heart, not just in word but also in action. I close with a scripture showing us how God our Heavenly Father loves us.
JEREMIAH 31:3 (NKJV) 3 The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.

ALASKA North to the Future!
Stunning Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau
June 2021 / ISSUE 125 / Vero’s Voice
he state motto couldn’t mean more during this year of the pandemic. The great news coming from Congress with the passage of the Alaska Tourism Restoration Act allows cruise lines to cruise to Alaska without having to stop at a foreign port. This allows cruises to set sail from Seattle and not have to stop in Victoria or Vancouver as was previously the (antiquated) law. While tourism was available over the past several months for land-only vacations, the majority of tourism comes from cruise lines who stop at ports along the way that have been devastated by lack of tourism such as Sitka, Skagway and even the state’s capital, Juneau. Cruise lines were quick to respond and have recently announced cruises leaving from Seattle as soon as July. While space has been filling fast, there is still the opportunity to enjoy a cruise through the Inside Passage or Glacier Bay. The only hurdle to the resumption of cruising is the okay from the CDC which is expected due to the overwhelming response by Congress. Some cruise lines will require vaccination, while others (such as Carnival corporations: Princess, Holland America and Carnival Cruise Lines) will not, but you must be sure to speak with a travel advisor or the cruise line directly to ensure you know all the protocols required before you go. There are cruises only, and then cruise tours, but either way you will need to head to Seattle where I recommend flying in at least one night prior to enjoy Pike’s Market, the Space Needle and other great sites as well as amazing restaurants such as Elliott’s Oyster House (my favorite for fresh crab and other seafood) and staying at great hotels. Stay at The Four Seasons to walk to Elliott’s or The Edgewater for some nostalgia where the Beatle’s stayed. You can often book your pre-cruise tour of the area with the cruise line or an excursion company if you are working through a travel professional. All hotels are relatively close to the docks, and you could technically fly-in and board then sail, but you don’t want to miss the boat, so spend a day earlier and enjoy the city. Cruises now will be at limited capacity which should make it extremely enjoyable and uncrowded. If you want mainstream upscale, choose an itinerary with Princess or Celebrity. For midscale, Royal Caribbean and NCL, and for value prices, Carnival. Most have packages that include WIFI, gratuities, beverage packages and more so you don’t have to worry about extras. Unfortunately, the luxury small expedition cruise lines are already sold out for 2021 since they never cancelled their Seattle itineraries, but you can plan for 2022 now, since space will go fast on cruise lines such as Silversea, Regent Seven Seas and Hurtigruten. You’ll want to book a balcony, but it doesn’t matter which side of the ship you are on, because the ships turn and you are guaranteed a view. If you really want a view full-time of the magnificent glaciers and wildlife, book an “aft-cabin” at the back of the ship. Some excursions you won’t want to miss are the Mendenhall Glacier, which is accessible regardless of your activity level, and also whale watching. Just be sure to tip the guides well, and be sure to take excursions since the livelihood of those living in Sitka, Ketchikan and Skagway depend on cruising and they are extremely happy to welcome you! Finally, if you have time, be sure to take a “cruise tour”. For this once in a lifetime trip, adding a week to explore Denali National Park is worth it. Princess actually owns their own railroad and lodges, so the tour portion when booking is seamless. Celebrity and Royal Caribbean work with the Alaska Railway. Don’t want to cruise? Book a flight to Anchorage and hop on the Alaska Railway for their tours of Denali with multiple lodges, or book the Princess Cruise Tour without the cruise…it’s just a long flight! Alaska is open for business. Show your support for this state which was hit so hard by the pandemic and enjoy a trip of a lifetime. It is time to go North to the Future!

REVIEWS Those Who Wish Me Dead - Rated R
Better Call Saul

Crime/Drama TV-MA AMC Original Series Currently on Netflix and other streaming services
In a word: Captivating.
by Chuck Cannon
f you are a nitpicker about correctness and accuracy, don’t see this movie. There are plenty of opportunities to think “Gotcha” in scenes that were a bit over-the-top for plausibility. But if you go to movies to be entertained and impressed with spectacular edge-of-your-seat visual effects and some pretty good acting, then this was worth the ten bucks paid at the big screen theater. Actually it’s worth seeing at the big theater as the 50-inch home TV screen won’t provide the same spectacular effects. The first half plods along with scenes that stimulate curiosity. The second half is one death-defying action after another. There are many aspects to the story line. Here’s one synopsis from an online viewer: “Still reeling from the loss of three lives, Hannah (Angelina Jolie) is a smoke jumper who’s perched in a watchtower high above the Montana wilderness. She encounters 13-year-old Connor (played by Australian actor Finn Little), a skittish boy who’s bloodied, traumatized, and on the run all alone in the remote forest after watching a horrible, spectacular murder. As Hannah tries to bring him to safety, she’s unaware of the real dangers to follow: two relentless killers hunting Connor and a fiery blaze consuming everything in its path.” The special effects are outstanding. The killers, who are actually dirty cops, are relentless in their goals to kill and kill more to save their corrupt butts. How the director (Taylor Sheridan) and his staff managed to shoot scenes that are virtually in the heart of massive raging forest fires is a mystery. If the “F” word bothers you, don’t see this picture. And yes, there is rampant violence. While Angelina Jolie remains one of Hollywood’s prime beauties, this film shows us she is a seasoned actress as well. But the real surprise is Finn Little, the young boy who faces horrors and challenges one could not conceive of. A great young actor indeed. We’ll see more of him. Minus over-the-top implausibilities, this was a captivating picture.
THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD 20 June 2021 / ISSUE 125 / Vero’s Voice
“Before Saul Goodman he was Jimmy McGill. And if you’re calling Jimmy, you’re in real trouble. The prequel to “Breaking Bad” follows small-time attorney Jimmy McGill as he transforms into Walter White’s morally-challenged lawyer, Saul Goodman.” Written by zaahir1604
et’s face facts: Spin-off TV shows tend to fare poorly compared to the original. I was disheartened when I heard about the spin-off to the amazing Breaking Bad series centering around the buffoonish clown of a character Saul Goodman. (‘S all good, man.) I was livid and heartbroken. I wanted Breaking Bad to end on a high note and not let this potential disaster ruin its legacy. Breaking Bad was an absolute masterpiece of a show, with an amazing story, script, cinematography, and music: you name it, it’s there. But the one thing that made Breaking Bad shine and in my opinion be one of the greatest series ever made was its deep development of the characters that made us either absolutely love or loathe them. It didn’t rely on special effects and had no fat to it whatsoever. No other show encapsulated a slow unveiling of characters so well that it was as if we were getting to know them personally in our own lives. I finally decided to give Better Call Saul a shot after hating its first few episodes. I figured maybe I could eventually forget about the fact that it was attached to my favorite TV show. When everybody who watched it was telling me it’s amazing, there must be something there, right? Better Call Saul is just as good as its predecessor. It maintains its very high standard in every aspect of the production, and most of all character development, motivation and relationships take center stage once more. I won’t spoil a thing about the storyline; instead I’ll concentrate on other aspects of the show. The first thing you notice (as was the case with Breaking Bad) is the camera. The photography is simply gorgeous. All the visual trademarks I’ve grown to love so much in
Breaking Bad are there: the playful camera angles, the creative ways to establish even a simple scene with unusual, interesting shots (yet without ever distracting from the storytelling); it’s just beautiful to look at. Then there’s the music. From the wonderful introductions (before the opening credits) to the last scene of an episode, music is not just used as background “noise;” carefully-picked songs are there to give clues and are an integral part of the story as they help establish the tone of certain scenes. I can’t listen to “Baby Blue” by Badfinger without picturing Walter White laying dead on the floor...still almost brings tears to my eyes. And the original music by Dave Porter feels as organic to Better Call Saul as it did in Breaking Bad. It is easy to find Better Call Saul even better than Breaking Bad, although I would chalk this up to it being more current and therefore more in the forefront of our minds in the Breaking Bad universe. If you, like me, have hesitated to give this show a shot for the same reasons, stop it. Let yourself feel uncomfortable for the first half of the first season, and then let it get its clutches into you. There is a 5th and final season of Saul planned which will end just as Breaking Bad would begin...Perfect!

MENU by Barbara Freund
une is the month of Father’s Day, weddings, and wedding anniversaries. These easy recipes are a delicious way to celebrate any special occasion. Serve with a salad or asparagus.
Filet Mignon with Shallots in Champagne Sauce Quite simply superb! INGREDIENTS: 2 tablespoons butter, cut in small pieces 1 teaspoon butter 1 teaspoon olive oil 2 filet mignons, 6 ounces each Salt & pepper 2 shallots, minced 1/2 cup brut champagne INSTRUCTIONS: • Take your steaks out of the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. • Cut the 2 tablespoons butter into small pieces and set aside. • Generously season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides AND the outer edges. • Melt the remaining 1 teaspoon butter with the olive oil in a heavy cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sear steaks on both sides, using tongs to flip. • Lower the heat and cook to desired doneness, about 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. (Use a meat thermometer to check for desired doneness; meat continues to cook another 3-5 degrees when removed from pan.) • Remove steaks to a heated platter. • Add the minced shallots to the skillet and sauté one minute. Add the champagne and boil over high heat to reduce quickly by two-thirds. • Remove the pan from the heat and swirl in the butter pieces. Pour the sauce over the steaks and serve. (Let steak rest 5 minutes before serving.) 22 June 2021 / ISSUE 125 / Vero’s Voice
Perfect Oven Baked Potatoes
You’ll never cook potatoes in the microwave again! INGREDIENTS: Russet potatoes Olive oil Coarse kosher salt INSTRUCTIONS: • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. • Scrub the potatoes, dry thoroughly, and pierce all over with a fork. • Rub a generous amount of olive oil on potatoes using your hands. • Place on baking sheet and generously sprinkle all sides with salt. • Bake about an hour depending on size of potatoes.
Authentic Italian Tiramisù Tiramisù means “pick me up” and dates back to the 1800’s in the Province of Treviso, Italy. It’s an elegant and comforting treat everyone loves, so much so that March 21 is World Tiramisù Day. INGREDIENTS: 3 large egg yolks, cold 1 cup unpacked powdered sugar, sifted 2 1/4 cups full-fat mascarpone, cold 27-36 Italian ladyfingers (the hard ones) Approximately 1/2 cup cool brewed espresso or strong coffee 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder INSTRUCTIONS: • Set aside a 9 x 7 x 3-inch or 8 x 8 x 3-inch casserole dish. • In a large bowl, using a whisk attachment, beat the egg yolks and powdered sugar on medium-high for 2-3 minutes, until it’s creamy and the sugar is completely dissolved. • Add the mascarpone and mix on medium about 1 minute, until smooth and creamy. • Pour the espresso in a shallow dish. Quickly dip both sides of the ladyfingers into the coffee, 1-2 seconds per side, and arrange on the bottom of the casserole dish. (Don’t saturate the ladyfingers; you want the Tiramisù to hold its shape.) • Carefully spread 1/3 of the mascarpone cream on top of the ladyfingers. • Repeat twice more. From bottom to top you should have ladyfingers and cream, ladyfingers and cream, ladyfingers and cream. • Wrap the dish tightly with plastic wrap. For best results, refrigerate overnight and enjoy on the second day. • Dust lightly with cocoa powder before serving. OPTIONS: • Add 1-2 tablespoons Kahlua or rum to the coffee. • After the mascarpone mixture has been beaten into the eggs, you can also add 1/2 cup whipping cream; mix on medium-high about 2 minutes, until peaks form. • Or you can pipe the whipped cream on top of the chilled Tiramisu before you dust it with cocoa powder. Use a Wilton 1A round tip.

What You Should Know About Your
DOMAIN NAME D
omain names. The xyz.com addresses that you type into a web browser to get to things you are looking for. Names like www.VerosVoice.com or www. LauraSteward. com, or in the case of what I recently searched for, Shandong Noodle House. Except what I found was a site that I didn’t know wasn’t owned by the actual restaurant on Miracle Mile. It is owned by a company that is acting as middle man without the restaurant’s permission according to the restaurant’s owner. Let me explain why this is important enough to write about. Domain names are the internet’s unique way of finding your business and that is why only one person can own a specific spelling of a domain name. Unfortunately, nothing is stopping someone from buying a version of your domain name, or instead of .com, using .net, .org, .biz or many other options. In the case of Shandong Noodle House they bought, and currently use, sdnoodle.com. Definitely shorter and easier to type, but they didn’t also buy
shandongnoodlehouse.com. This is critical for the real business because if you go to Google and type Shandong Noodle House Vero Beach, the first several listings are not the website actually owned and operated by the restaurant. Unfortunately, the real website for the restaurant at sdnoodle. com doesn’t show up in listings for several pages. And you cannot seem to place an online order for pickup. I discovered this when I went in for my order. Thankfully this was a legit site, which before I clicked to pay for my order, I triple checked things to make sure it was legit and not a hacking site. Sadly for the restaurant that order cost them 5% off the top of the order bill. Rather than fight, the restaurant has chosen to pay the 5% per order placed via that website. Perhaps because they do not want customer complaints? I wasn’t given any specific answer when I picked up my order. All I was told was it was not their website and they have to pay that owner 5% for every order placed via their online ordering. This is not illegal, but it is predatory. To prevent this happening to your business, make sure you buy the long name for your business, common misspellings of your business name, and even some alternatives. You never have to do anything with them, or you could
redirect them to your main website. The point is to protect your intellectual property that is your business web presence from someone looking to make a quick and shady buck off of you. I use www.godaddy.com to search for and buy domain names. There are others, but I find them trustworthy. You can fight the usurper of your domain name in court, but that takes time and money. That is what they count on. They don’t do this to big businesses anymore, but they do to many small business owners around the world. I’ve also seen people use other versions of your website for malicious purposes including posting incorrect information, being hateful to destroy your business, or even to embed malware on the computers of unsuspecting visitors to your website. rotect your income. Protect your name. So how many more domain names are you going to buy? And if you are looking to get some wonderful food from Shandong Noodle House, go to www.sdnoodle.com!

From the Office of Carole Jean Jordan, Tax Collector for Indian River County
REAL ID Deadline Extended
arole Jean Jordan, Indian River County Tax Collector, announces that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending the REAL ID full enforcement date by 19 months, from October 1, 2021, to May 3, 2023, due to circumstances resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has significantly impacted state ability to issue REAL ID compliant driver license and Identification cards, with many driver license agencies still operating at limited capacity. “Fortunately, here in Indian River County we are at almost 96% compliant as of December 2020, with the State of Florida at 94% compliance, which is significantly higher than the national average of 43%,” said Carole Jean Jordan. Beginning May 3, 2023 every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need REAL ID

TSA does not require children under 18 to provide identification when traveling with a companion within the United States. The companion will need to provide acceptable identification. Jordan further stated “this extension not only helps Florida residents by giving them more

Bunny Business T
he other day I made a point to leave ten minutes earlier than normal. My life is busy and I often overschedule a day. Along the way to my appointment, I let other drivers pull in front of me with a smile. I chose a side street instead of the main road even though the lesser speed limit would slow me down. I saw two rabbits and a flock of ibis feeding contentedly. I would have missed them if I were in a hurry. Perhaps the “hurry up” mentality that is so common in our society is robbing me of life’s tender moments. Watching two bunnies on a lawn didn’t keep the bill collectors
away or help a loved one deal with a terrible disease. Still, watching two bunnies made me feel serene. The serenity will help me with the other issues. Had I raced to the meeting focusing on making green lights and not making eye-contact with drivers trying to pull into traffic, negativity would have driven my day. To engage the hurry-up mentality is to focus on myself and my needs only. It cuts other people out of the equation and makes my struggles feel greater. Those struggles weigh heavily because I feel I must carry them alone. In conclusion, hurrying through
by Beth Walsh Stewart
life diminishes joy and separates me from my fellows. I see now that I have bought into the “Burger King” mentality whereby I want things MY way via the drive-through so I don’t waste any precious time. Oddly enough, time IS precious. I can choose how to spend it. I can invest it in pressurized schemes that save me two minutes here and seven minutes there, or I can slow down and enjoy the ride. Just for today, I choose to invest in my peace of mind. Hurry up and decide if you’re with me!

Do You See What I See?
o you believe we are in a battle? Is our Nation in a place we have never been before? Good is evil, and evil is good. Everything we once believed to be wrong passes with flying colors. Is anyone with me? I believe we are fighting to hold onto the red, the white, and the blue, and it’s shredding before our eyes. The red represents the blood. The blood of our fathers and our forefathers who fought to give us the freedom we are trying to hang onto like never before. We are fighting for the white, for the purity that once clothed our land. In our schools, in our churches, and everywhere else we lay our eyes. Morality in all facets of life possibly will never be the same. And the blue, our men in blue. Our protectors, our warriors are in a battle we can’t even fathom. As we once looked to those with a badge of honor, they have sadly become the enemy. They are dropping off their posts like flies as they are being persecuted for the job they were hired to do. So what do we do, where do we turn? Some look to the news, but is there any truth there? Some turn to their families as if they have all the answers. And others even turn to horoscopes to see what our fate will be day after day after day. I believe the battle we are facing today is spiritual. If you take the time and look at what is going on, it’s not about parties. It’s not about the Republican party; it’s not about the Democrats. It’s a battle of good versus evil; it is God versus Satan. We know who has the upper hand in this. It may seem like the enemy is winning, but only for a time. God will step in and He will show who is more significant. He will be faithful to His Word and what it says within. What’s the answer? If the battle is spiritual, we must fight with spiritual weapons. If you do not know what they are or how to fight that kind of a battle, I believe I have the answers for you. Ephesians 6 tells us, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:10
by Del Bates
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:10
VB Book C enter and A
So you see, it may seem like the problems lurking everywhere we look are from this party doing this or that, but no. What does the verse tell us? It is NOT flesh and blood. It is against the rulers. Against the authorities. Against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil. That is Satan and all his evil spewed out before us. If you read the next verse Paul tells us what we need to fight. He gives us the remedy for how to fight what comes against us today. He tells us to stand firm. He describes piece by piece the armor of God we need to wear to fight this Spiritual battle. If you are new to this sort of teaching, don’t feel alone. I was oblivious until a few years ago. When you study it, when you look into it and start listening to teaching, it all falls into place. It will make sense to you as it did to me. nd to answer my question from line one of this article – YES, WE ARE IN A BATTLE! How do we get out, how do we see our way through? I have, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, penned a book that is a valuable tool to guide us along. My book Walking in a Minefield describes what we face today. We are “walking in a minefield” fighting for the soul of our Nation. Discover chapter by chapter how to avert the bombs of deception, lies, and dishonesty that are blatantly before us every day. Discover the weapons God gives each of us to use to win the battles we face. Although things may not turn around as we wish they would, and there’s no magic genie in a bottle that will make all our problems of the day disappear, you will find peace in the chaotic confusion. Let’s go back to my original question. If you cannot see we are in a battle, you may not need a way out. But if you can say, “Yes! I know we are in a battle for our lives and the lives of the generations to come,” then I believe my book will bring you peace and hope in the most significant storm our country has ever faced.
