- God's Grace and Mercy! by Jeanie on 7/12/2016
“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.
With a grateful heart, I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
- Stand strong in Christ and fight! by Anne on 4/6/2016
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.
