Eliminating stains in ceiling drywall?

Hi everyone, thanks in advance for any responses, really appreciate it.

So, just bought a house and I am going through the process of scraping the popcorn and repainting the ceiling.

There is one area in a hallway where there was a leak that caused a hole and a pretty large stain about a foot in diameter. No matter how much ceiling paint I slather on, the stain continues to come through the paint and show up... even though the hole had been repaired years ago, and it's completely dry.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

A proper primer, like original oil Kilz or Binz should seal the stain.
