Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered if Satan is real?

In his book Out of the Devil's Cauldron: A Journey from Darkness to Light, John Ramirez tells the story of how he was trained to be the third-ranked high priest of a satanic cult in New York City, casting powerful witchcraft spells and controlling entire spiritual regions. But what started as a long spiral into the underworld ended in a miraculous encounter with Jesus Christ that changed the course of his life. Let John Ramirez walk you through the dark alleys of this world as he uncovers the hidden secrets of darkness through his powerful testimony.

People from all ethnic backgrounds dabble in the occult and fall victim to this satanic underworld, never seeing the way out. John Ramirez is one in a million who made it out. His home church for the past nine years has been Times Square Church in New York, founded by David Wilkerson. John has not only been blessed with the opportunity to attend there and sit under the word and mature spiritually, but the Lord opened the door through the security ministry to form a tight bond between him and Pastor Dave.

For two and a half years, John had the privilege and blessing to walk with Pastor Dave, who became a spiritual father to John. He prayed with John, laid hands on him, and even read the manuscript of Out of the Devil's Cauldron before the book was published, giving his blessing. Pastor Dave was so touched by John's testimony that one night, he brought him up onstage to have him share his story with the congregation.

In the 1950s, Pastor Dave had a young man named Nicky Cruz in his life. When Nicky told Pastor Dave, "I will cut you into a thousand pieces," through the Holy Spirit Pastor Dave said, "Nicky, if you cut me into a thousand pieces, all one thousand pieces would say, 'Jesus loves you.'" Many years later David Wilkerson, through the Holy Spirit, said to John Ramirez, "I see Jesus in you." And those words forever changed John's life, spurring him to go minister anywhere in the world. Today John says, "Thank you, Pastor Dave, for seeing Jesus in me."

John Ramirez is a speaker sought out by many who want to hear of his involvement in the highest levels of the occult and how he got out. He speaks at churches, schools, rallies, and conferences - both secular and Christian - and has been a featured guest on TV and radio programs. He can be reached at JohnRamirez.org.

Powerful Story of Redemption!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook for anyone who wants to learn more about spiritual warfare and to hear the powerful testimony of a man delivered from the pits of hell and called as a servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

What about Steven Menasche’s performance did you like?

His voice was raspy and I couldn't listen continuously due to personal taste.

Mesmerizing & hopeful

I was hooked from the beginning. I finished the book in 2 days. It is very well told.

From someone who grew up with card readings and "trabajos" being a normal and harmless thing, this book opened my eyes to all darkness I was inviting into my life. Those things now have a different meaning simply because of the fact that the explanation is coming directly from someone who experienced the dark side first hand. Offending Jesus is something I never want to do.

This book is a great read for those who are lost, strayed and even hopeless.

Your story John has even given me a new perspective on parenting. I don't think a lot of parents realize the damage that is done to a child's spirit with a few harsh words. In your case John, pushed you towards the dark side. I will forever think before I speak to my children.

Thank you John for sharing your experience. I was moved to tears to learn that (SPOILER ALERT) you were able to forgive your father in the end.

A Christian must

This book had me scared for a minute then I remembered FEAR IS NOT OF THE LORD. As I listened, I became interested in how the devil seems to lure Christians away and how to identify his methods to counter them. It was a homerun, this book helped me with my Initial Sermon, my identification of demon tactics, but most of all...IT LETS YOU KNOW THAT JESUS HAS TOTAL VICTORY.

Great story! I love being on the inside!

John Ramirez takes you deep into the annals of dark forces and principalities in high places. Few have gotten out of where this guy has been. If you want an inside into the Underworld and understand what Christians and unsuspecting victims are up against daily, then this is a Must-listen.

An eye opening book!

It was easy to listen to this narrator. The author is good at fashioning pictures to walk you through his experiences, and the book moves right along easily, inspite the grafic, and sobering story.

God is awesome!

Another soul saved! PTL! This book has shown me the importance of prayer. I've been born-again for 15 yrs., am 51, & have seen God's beautiful grace & absolute miracles in my own life. II had a horrible life before I gave my life to the Lord, my last "thing" to try before I'd planned to commit suicide. I wasn't raised in church, but never doubted there was a God. My life changed 100 percent for the better, altho I still went thru life's tragedy's, like my only sibling committing suicide the next yr., becoming disabled & living in constant pain for 18 yrs now, & more. But my worst day with the Lord is still always better than my best day without Him. I am so thankful. Now, thanks to John Ramirez & this bk., I know more about the power of prayer & thank John Ramirez for that & his incredible testimony.

This is great revelation about the lies that the enemy tries to use to ensnare many people and the revelation that God wants to bring of the truth that sets people free.

Set Free

This book has shed light on the traditions I’ve witnessed as a child in the catholic religion and growing up as a Hispanic. I’ve prayed for forgiveness and repented from some acts in my ignorance and grateful that Jesus has set me free and my son from an act I did when he was an infant. After reading and the Lord bringing to my remembrance we were set free. Thank you Jesus

Mesmerizing and powerful

This story was engaging from beginning to end. I'm so glad Jesus saved John, and I'm so glad John lived to tell his story. If you want to know the truth about the occult, and the power of Jesus to set the captives free, this book is for you.
