As a boy, John Ramirez used to watch his father beat his mother and then go into his room to worship Satan.
Ramirez says he and his brother lived in terror—not only of their father but also of the demons they saw walk around their house.
"My father was a ... warlock," Ramirez says. "He was into Santería, spiritualism and Palo Mayombe. He had his own altar in the house, in the apartment. He would put the living room on fire. My brother and I would jump over the fire in rituals when we were young. My dad would worship demons."
In an interview with Charisma News, Ramirez says that the darkness he witnessed as a child led him into 25 years of hard-core Satanism. Ramirez rose in the ranks until he was New York's third-highest Satanic high priest.
He used his occult arts to enslave communities, lead weak Christians into the occult and terrorize anyone he could.
But his demonic power was no match for the love of Jesus. Click here to listen to the podcast at the top of this article to find out how a dream of hell changed Ramirez's life forever.
