NEW YORK, NY, July 25, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Viewers who tuned into the "700 Club" on June 27 read words that had never been aired on CBN's flagship program before, warning them about a story with images and themes so disturbing it required viewer discretion. The segment captured the life story of John Ramirez, the former third-ranked Santeria warlock in New York City who traded the satanic underworld of witchcraft for someone larger and more powerful than anything he could imagine--Jesus Christ.
In his book Out of the Devil's Cauldron: A Journey from Darkness to Light, Ramirez tells the story of how he was trained to be an evangelist for the dark side, 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 God that changed his life.

, shook the prayer center of the "700 Club," which reported that during that one segment 534 people called in to give their lives to Jesus Christ.
Raised in violent ghetto neighborhoods, Ramirez grew up despising his father for his careless disregard of his family. He learned to live like a street animal to survive the cold, harsh streets of the South Bronx. Looking for love and validation, he eventually found it in a new "family" of witches and warlocks who groomed him to become a high priest in their occult religion. Ramirez's plunge into the dark side reached a boiling point on the night he sold his soul to the devil in a diabolical, blood-soaked ritual. With renewed fervor--and the mark of the beast now cut into his right arm--he actively recruited souls into this "unholy kingdom," haunting the bars and clubs of NYC by night to find his next victims, including those who professed faith in Christ. His life continued on this dark path for 25 years until God intervened through a larger-than-life dream, revealing Himself for who He really is and snatching Ramirez back from the pit of hell.
Out of the Devil's Cauldron, available also in Spanish, walks you through the dark alleys of the occult religions of Santeria, Palo Mayombe, and espiritismo (spiritualism) while exposing the hidden secrets of darkness. Be held in suspense as you read each chapter of this chilling true story of the life of a Santeria high priest and his journey from darkness to light. Many have dabbled in the occult and fallen victim to the satanic underworld, never finding their way out. John Ramirez is the one in a million who made it out.
