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!
This state of foolishness is a personal choice and can be eliminated by reading or listening to the right materials.
Books on Spiritual Warfare & Deliverance
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…

1. The Jezebel Spirit, Spiritual Wars on Relationships By Joseph GM

I am comfortable to say that I felt inspired to write this book. 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.
2. The Three Battle Grounds
This is one of the best books I have read on the topic of deliverance. ‘The Three Battle Grounds’ is written by Francis Frangipane.
I highly recommend the book to everyone and anyone seeking deliverance.
The interesting part of this story is how Josiah transformed his family. I have read several biographical stories but Josiah’s Fire is one of the best. It has lots of Words of knowledge which are clearly coming from a spiritual gift. The content of the book confirms that Josiah has at least two gifts of the Holy Spirit as described in the scripture below.
1 Cor 12: 8 (ISV) To one has been given a message of wisdom by the Spirit; to another the ability to speak with knowledge according to the same Spirit;
The flow of messages out of Josiah’s fire is like a spring of knowledge.
