Unmasking the Devil: Strategies to Defeat Eternity's Greatest Enemy by John Ramirez

Satanist-Turned-Evangelist Gives You the Inside Strategy to Defeat the Devil's Plans!

Many people, even Christians, deny the devil's power. John Ramirez doesn't have that luxury-he experienced the prince of darkness up close and personal.

In the impoverished streets of the South Bronx, John Ramirez found "acceptance" from a family of witches and warlocks. These practitioners of dark arts trained him to be a high-ranking satanic priest-a story told in his first book, Out of the Devil's Cauldron. However, everything changed when he met the living Christ.

In Unmasking the Devil, John Ramirez shares an insider view of how satan operates so you can avoid his traps and learn how to:

  • discern between the voice of God that directs to victory and satan's voice that leads to destruction.
  • close the demonic doors satan uses to enter your life: entertainment, unhealthy relationships, greed, and false religion.
  • activate the spiritual weapons of prayer, intercession, and Scripture to render hell powerless over your life.
  • recognize how the spirits of Jezebel and Delilah attempt to infiltrate the church, create disunity, and render God's people powerless.

No army goes into battle without first knowing the tactics of their enemy. Receive behind-the-scene glimpses of satan's strategies and equip yourself to live victoriously over the powers of darkness!

"Spiritual warfare is a must for every Christian if they are going to survive in the coming years," says John Ramirez. "It's time to stop playing patty-cake with the devil and learn how to put hell on notice."

john ramirez has one of the most powerful testimonies i have ever heard. just like paul in the bible, God has snatched him out of the hands of the adversary for God's glory and power. i believe if we are all in Christ Jesus there is no room for division against anyone who steps out on faith to do God's work. 2 cor. 5:17 it doesn't matter where we came from or what we said before coming to Christ Jesus, we are new and everything we were is dead. anyone can judge a man by their appearance, but only God can judge a man's heart. so read the book and judge for yourself whether or not John Ramirez is a man of God or not. i believe.

Having researched for nearly 20 years particular items concerning the dark side and satanic worship and interviewed several people who were once satanists, this book by John Ramirez is above and beyond the information anyone would need in order to be free from any demonic attack. Even if you're a Spirit-filled Christian who's having problems with fighting against the spirits that come to boggle your mind and being fear to your heart, you'll be free in no time if you faithfully use the strategies and other insightful information Evangelist Ramirez shares in his sophomore work. Having over 1-million views on YouTube is for many, convincing enough that John knows what he's talking about and that he knows how to defeat any devil by the Word of God and the cross of Christ Jesus. Take notes or highlight the parts of this book that speak to you personally. This is one of those books that you can't help but bring up in conversation. People the world over need to know what available in this easy-to-read book about the victory we have in the Kingdom of God on Earth.

As I was led by the Holy Spirit to write this book, to equip the Saints that are spiritually tired, the purpose is to arm them against the kingdom of darkness, so they can live the victorious life that Jesus Christ has designed for them and to also find their purpose and destiny of who they are in Christ. Also to breakdown the strongholds or any generational curses in the family line that is stopping them from God’s best in their lives. I know deep in my heart that this book is not only a blessing to my life, but I pray that it will be a blessing to many others. It’s time to destroy the patterns and cycles of the enemy that are coming against your life and now it’s time to get free through the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit. The enemy loves to keep us ignorant of the strategies and schemes of his devices that he uses against the Saints. This book will be an eye opener to many to live the victorious life, in Jesus name. Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. God Bless you all my Brothers & Sisters! Love you all in Christ Jesus, Evangelist John Ramirez

Great insight Ramirez was a Satan-worshiper for 25 years and became a warlock and demonic high priest before being transformed by the power of God. He definitely was an insider in the dark kingdom and now exposes the devil’s strategies and limitations. The author reveals specific spirits dominating world cultures, neighborhoods, families and individuals. He shows how we give evil spirits authority to influence us, gain greater power over us and ultimately control us. He identifies common practices that expose us to the enemy’s activities in our lives and nine critical areas we Christians must be aware of to gain our spiritual freedom, including how to use our spiritual authority effectively.

"Unmasking the Devil" by author John Ramirez is a 176 page paperback book. This book on spiritual warfare is published by Destiny Image. It is an interesting, informative, frightening book written by a former Satanic priest. Actually the author states he was the third highest ranked priest in a Satanic cult in New York City before he miraculously found Jesus. Author Ramirez grew up in the Broncs and humbly says that he is not an educated man and his words are not always politically correct. Sometimes the wording in this book is a little rough and might offend some. Even overlooking that it is a well written, captivating book. This unique book is a first hand look into the dark world of Satanism from a former member, now born again Christian. The author explains that since we are in a battle, spiritual warfare, we need to have knowledge of our enemy and his tactics. We need to know how to defend ourselves. He warns us that Satan worshippers are everywhere, and they blend right into society and everyday life. They could be in your workplace, neighborhood, or school. Their goal is to get firmly planted and infiltrated into humanity. They want to take over. The author knows how the enemy attacks us and how we can retaliate. He has worked for Satan and knows intimately what to do. He states the battle is real and Satan does try to take over our lives. Satan is a deceiver and liar. He attacks the mind first by strongly trying to convince people that their sin is not that bad - something they can stop if they ever wanted to quit doing it. It is not a big deal according to Satan. After Satan gets in someone's mind he has his foot in the door. Then he works on their emotions and their will. He uses lies, deceit, deception, and temptation. He tools are music, movies, television, the entertainment industry, our greed, bad & unhealthy relationships, and false religions to get into our minds and lives. His minions go into our own churches to cause disruptions, disharmony and upheaval. In order for us to stand up in this battle we must be equipped. First and foremost we must make God number one in our life. We must pray diligently. We must read God's Word. We must call upon God and ask others to pray for us. It is imperative to listen to God's voice and not that of the deceiver. The author provides tips to assist in discerning the difference. God's voice directs us to victory while Satan’s voice shows us the way to destruction. I would recommend this book to any Christian. I would not recommend reading it right before going to bed. It is packed with some pretty heavy stuff. This book will stay with you long after you put it down. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. A copy was provided by The Book Club Network for my honest review.

“The number one key we need to establish in spiritual warfare is the fear of the Lord. ‘The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.’ (Prov. 9:10 NIV)”…”The fear of the Lord means to reverence Him, to be in awe of who He is.” (pages 78 and 79). The author of ‘Unmasking the Devil’ is a man who worked for satan for many years, trained to be the third high priest in New York City. He is also now a man saved by the grace and mercy of the One who has all power over sin, satan, and death – Jesus Christ. Few people at the level he ‘attained’ in devil worship are willing to leave that life behind to be a servant of the Lord. Fewer still would be the people who would write an expose of how anyone, including Christians, can unknowingly be ensnared by the devil and how to avoid those traps or be set free from them. Evangelist Ramirez has shared powerful truths in this guidebook. He writes of many varied ways that one is led away from putting Jesus first (if one already is a believer) or tries out some of the seemingly innocent paths to follow the ways of the devil. There are a few he writes about that I was unaware of, and several that I had been aware of. More than that, the author writes about how to avoid, get out of, or help others out of the grip of satan. He uses supporting scriptures and shares several important prayers and other information that can aid us in our walk with the Lord. One thing he writes about when he was a satan worshipper that shows how prayers of the faithful are answered, as he would go through various neighborhoods and hurl down curses and insults: “...in some neighborhoods I met with strong resistance and at first couldn’t understand where the opposing power came from…Finally I realized these were the nasty Christians praying for their neighborhoods…Wherever praying Christians lived, I couldn’t penetrate the neighborhood.” The author writes that spiritual warfare is the most critical practice we need to understand and actively participate in. John Ramirez understands both sides of this challenge – he knows how the devil and his minions work, and he knows the unlimited power of almighty God, and how we have the ability to act in the name of Jesus – never our own strength – through spiritual warfare, intercessory prayer, and deliverance ministries. ‘Unmasking the Devil’ is a critically important book for Christians of this generation in our country to read. But read it slowly. There were times that I could not digest more than a few pages at one time. Understand where the Lord is calling you. Along with one’s Bible and favorite devotional or Bible study books, I believe this should be handy to use, and to study the scriptures referenced in it. Re-read it, perhaps keep a second copy to give to someone who truly needs it. Remember that “The greatest title in the Kingdom is Servant. It’s time to pick up the towel, wrap it around our waist, and get to the battlefield.” (pg. 119) I highly recommend ‘Unmasking the Devil’ for those who want to avoid the pitfalls of satan, who want to help our home, churches, and neighborhoods be released from the bondages of these pitfalls.

Unmasking the Devil, by John Ramirez is a spiritual warfare manual every follower of Christ should read. Written by a man who was steeped in devil worship for a number of years and miraculously made a new creation in Christ, the book is a treatise on the whys and how-tos of defeating the devil's work in one's personal life, in the community, and in the church. Readers are reminded of the cunningness of Satan as he makes footholds into the minds and lives of humans, who are made in the image of God and thus hated by Satan and his minions. Ramirez calls believers to be the victorious Christians God intended them to be..."to fight back spiritually ad engage the hosts of hell". And the destruction of these strongholds begins with the fear of the Lord. One chapter includes a discussion on the Armor of Go and 12 weapons that Christians have to destroy the gates of Hell. These include the Name of Jesus, the word of our testimony, intercessory prayer, an obedient life, and perseverance, to name a few. There are specific prayers a believer can use to begin self-deliverance, to forgive others, and to break generational curses. Ramirez includes numerous scripture references to give credence to his discourse and includes a section on how to make a decision to ask Jesus Christ into one's heart and life. A book well worth the time to read and act upon. I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

Unmasking the Devil was fascinating. I was so interested I actually went out and bought Out of the Devil’s Cauldron to read because I wanted to read that one first, which tells about his conversion. This was a great book to go along with that one and I highly recommend buying and reading both. Great read - I am still thinking about it. I received this book for free from The Book Club Network and the author in exchange for my honest review.

This amazing book provides the reader with strategies to combat the evils of the devil and stop his power. It equips the reader with tools from God and the Bible to keep him/her from falling into satan’s subtle traps. The author, a former Satanist, came to Christ in 1999 after living in the demon lifestyle for 25 years. He had experienced all things in the occult, but when Jesus Christ entered his life, the real power of life became his. He now lives to teach the Church its authority and how to combat the works of the devil in the power of Jesus’ name. This book is certainly an eye-opener and well worth the read. If anyone wants to know the power of the Holy Spirit in one’s life, this is the book to read.

This is a book every Christian needs to read. It cuts to the heart and doesn’t let go. This is an eye-opener for many of us who want to live with our eyes closed to the work of our enemy. A few quotes that hopefully will entice you to read more are from page 28: “You need to come to see that your purpose and destiny are also lined up with the region and the season you are in.” Woah, if we really think about that doesn’t that change our perspective and see the challenges we are facing as possible attacks from the enemy who doesn’t want to see us fulfill God’s purpose in our life? Another from page 37: “The tools that the devil uses most often are temptation and deception. Temptation is to make you want to quit and give up on God, and deception is to make you believe that you’re never going to come out of your circumstances.” How true is that? I have been there many times playing with temptation and then giving into deception. Overall, a very valuable book that I think every Christian should get their hands on.

This was a very interesting book. The author gives us a first hand account of how Satan worshippers melt into society and try and take root in humanity. It is a very scary outlook for those who don't give themselves to God. He gives us the tools to resist Satan and his followers. The only thing I can say negative about the book is that I wish he had more information on these strategies. The author helps us understand the difference between God speaking to us and Satan trying to speak to us. He gives us some tools and we must learn from them and always make God number one! I did enjoy finding out how he became the spiritual soldier for God. I will have to read his first book, "Out of the Devil's Cauldron". I received this book from The Book Club Network for an honest review. Thank you and God Bless

John Ramirez began life in New York City in a family where his father’s absence was almost preferred to his presence but his absence also meant no money and no food. His presence meant beatings for his mother and himself and it meant dabbling in the occult and witchcraft. Ramirez rose in the New York ranks of devil worshippers to become the number 3 satanic priest in all of New York. He practiced Santeria, Spiritualism and Palo Mayombe and was considered an “evangelist for the dark side, recruiting many to ‘the religion.’” After 25 years of working for the devil, Ramirez was converted to new life in Christ. He now is an evangelist for Christ and works to expose the devil’s schemes wherever he sees them. This book is a practical primer for anyone who wants to: discern between the voice of God that leads to victory and satan’s voice which leads to destruction; close demonic doors that satan uses to enter lives; activate the spiritual weapons of prayer, intercession and scripture to render hell powerless; and recognize how the spirits of Jezebel and Delilah attempt to infiltrate the church, create disunity and render God’s people powerless. Ramirez gives many examples of some of satan’s strategies that he, himself, carried out when he served the devil. His experiences make this book all the more powerful. I appreciated his emphasis on spiritual warfare and his 6 page prayer in the middle of the book to help his readers think through all of the places in their own lives where the devil may be attacking them. I did have a couple of ‘catches’, if you will, as I read. One that I’ll name here is his insistence that Catholicism is one of the devil’s “religions”. He states that to him as a former follower of Santeria, which is the worship of saints, Catholicism is no different. While I’m not Catholic, I know many who are and I guess I don’t see them worshipping anyone but Christ Jesus. Yes, they revere Mary and the various saints but I believe their worship is reserved for their savior. This was a tough read and, even though it is a fairly short book, it took a long time to get through. I’d read a chapter then take some time to let it soak in before tackling the next chapter. His spiritual warfare chapter alone, is worth the price of the book. I definitely recommend! *I received this book from Book Fun.org in exchange for my honest opinion.
