Prophet Russ, When Did You Know You Were a Prophet?
I’ve been asked that many times. I am a prophet. That means something to me and it means something for you as well. This 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 with us. They 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. The gathering of God’s prophetic eagles is now. We are moving forward in this 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.
