When the eighteenth-century English poet Thomas Gray wrote the phrase “where ignorance is bliss”, he may have quietly watched people going about their daily business unaware of danger that was lurking in the shadows. He may have observed that these people ignored knowledge and were happy with their lifestyle till that moment when something went wrong and they hit a wall.
About 2700 years ago, a person by the name of Hosea spoke the following inspired words; “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6)
Like sheep being led to a slaughter house, we follow blind guides who speak persuasive words straight from their own ignorance. We are completely unaware that our demise comes from indulgence in this ignorance. We then live in a state of deceptive bliss (that I can identify with), oblivious to the dangers ahead!
Worldliness blinds all humans to the spiritual war that we are all born into! This state of foolishness can be eliminated by reading or listening to the right materials.
Spiritual warfare is not just learnt from any book or through any preacher.
Just like we get messages from some old inspired hymns written hundreds of years ago, some books have inspired messages. If a book is written through inspiration, it is likely to help someone somewhere!
However, in pursuit of knowledge we are supposed to choose what we read. Paul advised believers in Corinth, 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV) …whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. John also advised believers in 1 John 4:1 (NLT) Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God…

My heart was peaceful as soon as I completed writing this book that exposes the works of the jezebel spirit!

Jezebel is an unclean spirit that sets up a system of its own subtle authority to channel evil in homes, work places, political arena and established social or church groups. It would be wise for anybody who feels that they are under some kind of control or oppression to read the book.
This is an exceptionally good book on spiritual warfare!
‘The Three Battle Grounds’ is one of the best books I have read on the topic of deliverance.
I highly recommend the book to everyone and anyone seeking deliverance.
