Prophet Russ, When Did You Know You Were a Prophet?
I’ve been asked that many times. I am a prophet. That calling came upon me before I was born. My wife Kitty and I are here to be the prophets in your life. There are many people already that we have given closer connection to that are more than friends they are family and co-laborers in Christ, and we treat them as such. With this post, we are opening up an opportunity for you to have a more personal connection to who we are and what we do. Why? Because it is time. Because God told us to and because we don’t know how to love you from arm’s length. Is this possible? With God all things are possible. (See the end of this post for more information).
As a child, I heard the audible voice of God on a regular basis. Through my teens that shifted. My background in the prophetic reached back 20 years before I was born as my parents were heavily exposed to the ministry of Prophet William Branham and they also participated in the Latter Rain Revival that was deeply prophetic through the 40s to the 60s. As with many prophets, the circumstances of my birth spoke to the significance of my calling. Before I was born (1960) my parents were told I would be filled with the Holy Spirit in my mother’s womb. My father remembered me joining him to kneel in prayer, speaking in distinct tongues when I was still in diapers.
As a teenager and through my teens I experienced profound visions. As a young pastor, the Lord brought me into the prophetic, telling me “if you say it I will do it – if you won’t say it I won’t do it.” Miracles happened. Cancers reversed. Two resurrections from the dead. Barren wombs opened on a regular basis. Lou Gherig’s disease miraculously healed and many, many more unimpeachable incidents of the same nature. That level of the prophetic (called Oracle Prophecy) was first experienced by Samuel in the Bible. From my youth and during the years I served as a pastor in my 20s through my 40s, I received dozens of prophetic words that I was called to be an apostle. As a foundation layer, I have moved in a prophetic arena (with unique success) that not many before me have in the digital frontier, although many followed after (imitation being the highest form of flattery).
In the transition from pastor to prophet I often said: “I am not a prophet, I am an advocate for the prophetic.” I felt that I didn’t need to talk about what was being demonstrated in my life. In time, after prophesying personally to 1000’s and sending the Daily Word out to tens of thousands, my wife Kitty said “if it quacks like a duck…” and that was a watershed moment. The Lord instructed me to not only move in prophetic office but to refer to myself as Prophet Russ – thus taking a stand that being called a Prophet is as legitimate in the earth as to call someone pastor or evangelist, etc. From that point, I became profoundly convinced that just as a Christian needs a pastor (or the other 5-fold ministries) that Christian also needs a prophet. Not a dead prophet or some distant content provider but a prophetic influence intimately ensconced in their life.
The question came “Who is the prophet in your life? If YOU don’t know or THAT PROPHET doesn’t know it – then you don’t have one!” We are here to be just that. We are here to raise up 5000 prophets according to God’s instructions to us. We have seen right at 6000+ people take our prophetic courses. A portion of those have moved into prophetic office. We aren’t waiting for a random “someday – one-day.” We are WALKING INTO and though it may not appear what we shall be (as Paul declared), we know that WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM and above all else determine to be FOUND FAITHFUL regardless of resistance or challenge – in the prophetic office He has called us to.

This is Russ and Kitty Walden, and this is a special report from Father’s Heart Ministry to our friends, supporters, viewers, and listeners of the Morning Light Bible Study (see video below and text version following):
Morning Light – Special Report
In recent days the COVID-19 situation has captured the attention of the world and caused concern in every sector of our society. In times like these, our faith is so important, and it is also essential to be armed with the facts. For everything that is reported in the news and by our governments, there is much that is not reported. We are not talking about information gleaned in some clandestine way but information that is readily available to the public if they would just take the time to arm themselves with accurate information rather than the spin other sources put on what is going on around us. One crucial example is a CDC report on a similar pandemic that most people didn’t realize was taking place even at the time.
What would you think if tomorrow morning you woke up to discover in the United States overnight there had been 60 million infections, 275,000 hospitalizations, and over 12,000 deaths? Imagine in the current climate, the level of panic and alarm that would create, yet, it has already happened, and most people don’t even remember it. I’m talking about the H1N1 pandemic in 2009. These were the statistics in the US alone:
60 Million Infections. 275,000 Hospitalizations. 12,000 Deaths.
All of this, much worse than COVID-19 today, yet even at the time, in 2009, there was no panic, no empty grocery shelves, no market crash, canceled flights, or travel restrictions. What is happening here? As of yesterday, in the US, there have only been 1675 infections and 41 deaths. What is the difference? In 2009 in the United States, one in five Americans were hospitalized with H1N1; still, there was no suggestion that hospitals were being overrun. Where were the news reports? The entirety of the H1N1 pandemic was barely a footnote on the network news. It is time to arm yourselves with the facts.
What are we to conclude regarding all of this? Many surmisings could be made, from vague generalizations to outright skullduggery and murky, clandestine plots, etc. Father’s Heart Ministry does not exist to promulgate such fanciful, paranoid ideas. What we are here to do is to speak the truth. The facts stated thus far did not come from a right-wing news agency or any politically-charged resource. The facts and figures herein cited are direct from the apolitical data gathering of the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control. The facts, not the rumor of COVID-19 compared to the H1N1 pandemic of 2009, by contrast, are absolutely minuscule yet look at what is happening now and what did not happen in 2009. Any level minded person capable of independent thought can only conclude that what borders on mass hysteria in the Western World may be real and actually taking place, but it does not take into consideration much worse pandemics in recent years that did not even remotely generate the kind of terror we see around us today.
What is causing all of this? Is it just a perfect storm of events and timing regarding such a thing taking place in an election year? That would be preferable to the unthinkable consideration that political operatives and powers-that-be in our culture actually want to create this kind of situation for their own disreputable ends. When you compare how various news organizations are reporting these events, the inconsistencies couldn’t be greater. Who do you trust? Where can we find the truth? The one overarching conclusion we can make in all of this is the fact of the inconsistent, negligent, and poison-laced narratives of the news organizations and other resources for whom the truth is only a lesser line item in a long list of priorities.
Where is the truth then? Where is our dependency as believers? In John 14:12, Jesus told His disciples:
[Jhn 14:6 KJV] 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Our truth is not something reported on the news. Our truth is a person, and His name is Jesus. In Luke 21:26, Jesus speaks of men’s hearts, failing them for fear of what they see coming upon the earth. We know that fear comes not from God but from Satan. In scripture, we see Satan as a serpent working to beguile the faithful. In Acts 16:16, there was a woman possessed with a spirit of divination who followed Paul. Did you know that the word “divination” is the Greek word “pythos?” This is where we get the word “python.” Pythons are constricting serpents who kill not with venom but by squeezing their victims not till they suffocate but till their hearts stop. That is the principality and the power that is holding the entire world in its grip right now – the spirit of python. As a result, what is happening? Everything is STOPPING. The economic heart of the business sector is stopping. Governments are stopping. Churches are stopping, and on and on it goes. How do we gain an understanding of all of this? Go to the word of God. Remember the words of Hebrews 4:12:
[Heb 4:12 KJV] 12 For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The word of God clearly exposes the spirit behind this pandemic of fear as the spirit of python and python manifests as it did with Paul in Acts 16 as a false prophecy. In Paul’s day, the damsel possessed with the spirit of divination operated out of the cave at Delphi. Today the spirit of divination is operating from the altar of the newscasts viewed in every home in the Western World. My counsel to you is to shake yourself and wake yourself from the mesmerism of the narrative of the world and return to the Rock of Christ from whence you sprang and to put your trust and keep your trust in Him during these trying times.
Why is fear running so unchecked in our society right now? Let’s remember the words of David in Psalm 19:9:
[Psa 19:9 KJV] 9 The fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD [are] true [and] righteous altogether.
If the fear of the Lord is clean, the fear of anything else is unclean. If you are afraid, you are dealing with an unclean spirit. That is why the world right now has no defense against the fear that is running rampant in our streets. Think of the uncleanness, debauchery, perversion, lust, unbelief, depravity, and wantonness that characterizes the world and society around us. In the last few decades the nations of the West have completely abandoned their moorings and as a result, have been foaming out their shame all the while shaking their fist in God’s face. Thus in their uncleanness, when fear comes, they have no defense. What about you? Are you afraid? Fear is tantamount to spiritual pornography. You wouldn’t look at pornography to titillate your flesh. Why would you immerse yourself in the spiritual pornography of fear all around us?
What is the answer? There are 365 scriptures about fear in the Bible, one for every day of the year. Let’s consider just a few:
[2Ti 1:7 KJV] 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
[Rom 8:15 KJV] 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
[1Jo 4:18 KJV] 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
[Gen 15:1 KJV] 1 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I [am] thy shield, [and] thy exceeding great reward.
[Deu 31:6 KJV] 6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
[Isa 7:4 KJV] 4 And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted …
[Isa 35:4 KJV] 4 Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompence; he will come and save you.
[Isa 41:13 KJV] 13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Let us remember the words of Jesus in Luke 10:19:
[Luk 10:19 KJV] 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Python is running unchecked through the earth right now, but Jesus has given you the power to put your foot on the serpent’s head, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. H1N1 shall not hurt you. COVID-19 shall not hurt you – by any means! How do you arm yourself? In our prayer regimen, Kitty and I for years have made the faith declaration as follows:
“Our bodies function in the perfection that God created it to function. In Jesus’ name, we forbid our bodies to be deceived by any virus or disease germ. Every virus or disease germ that touches our bodies dies instantly in the name of Jesus. We are strong and in good health. Our immune systems grow stronger day by day. We speak life to our immune systems, and we forbid confusion in our immune systems in any way. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead quickens our mortal bodies with the life and resurrection power of the Lord Jesus Christ. Every cell of our bodies supports life and health abundantly. We are not weak; neither are we sickly, and we will not die before our time. The life of God flows in our veins quickening every cell of our body with life, with health and vitality to ward off every virus, every abberhant condition that is contrary to the perfect, vital and vibrant health that the Lord Jesus went to the Cross to make available. We claim all the benefits of Calvary for our health and healing are 100 percent manifest in our bodies right now in the name of Jesus!”
In closing, is there anything else we need to know or do? Yes. Use wisdom. Safeguard your person and your loved ones. Take measured, common-sense steps to limit exposer as you would with any flu season. But keep your eyes on Christ and know you are under His loving and protective care. God bless you and remember, we want to be the prophets in your life (link).
Outstanding Miracles. In this meeting two dozen people reported significant healing, one person was healed of MS and put away her walker and one man was raised out of a wheelchair showing x-rays of two broken legs and a broken collar bone – he left his wheelchair on the platform and walked out of the building rejoicing.
