This is not an easy book to read if you don't understand spiritual warfare, but it is very informative. It is true that there is an enemy out there, but he can be disguised as anyone. His tricks are many and often subtle. I liked when the author talked about the enemy invading your mind. How many of us have believed that we are sick, unloved, or just ready to give up? See how easy it is for the enemy to take our thoughts captive and make you think things that are not true.

Recommends it for: Anyone
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 ...more

A must read for Christians

I believe that this book should be a part of a bible study in Spiritual Warfare. John Ramirez dissected each chapter very well and in a way that all readers can comprehend. Thank you, John Ramirez, for your testimony and inspiration.

Superb advice from a former devil worshiper. The self deliverance prayer shared in the book is powerful and insightful. Very well done!

Ramirez wants us to understand the role of Satan in the world. He knows whereof he writes as he was the third highest ranked priest in a Satanic cult in New York City before he had a miraculous encounter with Jesus. He told his story in Out of the Devil's Cauldron.

He's been in the enemy's camp. He knows how to combat the enemy's tactics. He writes about the ways the devil tries to invade our lives, the reality of spiritual warfare, and what it means to really be a soldier of the cross.

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 a

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 g

“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

"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. Some ...more

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.

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 G ...more

Did you know that almost all ex-satanists, especially "high-ranking" ones, tell us that one of the favorite ploys of the enemy is to cause weak Christians to avoid talking about the devil... to say that he is small and has no power... and to say that all we need to do is focus on Jesus and not worry about the devil.... or don't give the devil or his demons any credit by mentioning them? We are to love Jesus, glorify Him, worship Him and sing His praises, but we are also to be vigilant and be rea ...more

As a primer for recognizing Satan's presence and actions in the world around us, this book rates five stars. For readability, however, it is a four. The writer knows whereof he speaks and genuinely wants everyone to see that Satan is alive and actively seeking to destroy every Christ follower.
I would encourage every Christian to read this book. Ramirez's message is eye-opening and will make readers think twice about the things going on in our world today.

Unmasking the Devil by John Ramirez

This is a beautiful book about how Jesus delivered him from the devil’s grasp. It’s time for the devil to be exposed for all the damage he has done in all four corners of the globe. He the devil did have some help from other men and women, and children. Whatever people are doing against the Word of Yahweh (God), we will all have to give an account. This entire nation needs to Repent with prayer, fasting, and turning back to Yahweh, starting with the men because

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 ...more

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. I placed my review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodread

Awesome book

I chose this rating because this is another great book John Ramirez has wrote to makes aware of the lies and tricks the enemy plays on us . It's absolutely eye opener for us believers besides making us aware of his lies and help us not to be afraid of him. If God is for us who can be against us. We are more then conquerors because we have God on our side !

Thank you John Ramirez for writing this book and many more you have written .

Mr Ramirez is inspiring as well as passionate about his relationship with God. He has seen the other side and is desperate to set others free who are still in the grasp of Satan. His writing is real, unmasked, and points to the reality of life; the enemy of our soul is real and he has been defeated. But do we know him and do we know the victory is ours for the taking?

From the dark-side-to-the-light story. A great 180-degree sequel.

This book is a sequel from John Ramirez who found that leaving the dark life of the occult behind and turning to Jesus Christ was the best decision he could have made. He now teaches the truth of both worlds, as only one who has lived both worlds can do.

This is a good introduction to spiritual warfare looking from the eyes of an ex-devil worshiper. I highly recommend this book to those who want to understand just what Christians are battling up against.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

One of my favourite books of John Ramirez. The prayers in here are not your usual, they are powerful, effective and confronting. After I read this book it hit me so bad that I gave up smoking. He definitely unmasks the devil and his tactics and if you can handle the Truth, then this book is for you.

Grow in Knowledge and pursue your calling in Christ

Excellent knowledge on the operation of demonic forces that hinder the work of Christ and the spiritual growth and maturity of believers.
A must reading for all serious believers who are willing to engage the enemy with confidence.

This book clearly defines what we as Christians are expected to be and do. John goes ahead and clearly illustrates what happens behind the scenes when we are asleep spiritually. Glory be to the name of Jesus!

Another great John Ramirez book on spiritual warfare from someone who lived in Satan's camp for 25 years. All three of his books are great, but if you can only read one this is it.

“The Mind—Satan’s Battlefield Let me bring you into the enemy’s kingdom and the strategy of the devil in a deeper way. The first thing the enemy attacks is your mind. The enemy knows that the battle is in the mind, and he knows if he can capture the territory of your mind, your thoughts, and the way you operate, he’s got you in a stranglehold. The next move he makes will be to attack your soul. This includes your mind, will, and emotions. Once he’s got a person’s soul, he will paralyze that person and bring them down to nothing.” 2 likes
