Russ is a man who loves people deeply, he is a husband, father and now a very happy grandfather. He loves good coffee, the deep woods, fills his research rooms with thousands of books…. and Indian motorcycles. Russ loves evangelism and feels this is the core of his life and mission, he is committed to bring discipleship content to millions and seeks to expose radical evil while unleashing the message and works of Jesus… Russ sees Jesus as 'the hero of humanity'.
An intense and avid researcher Russ has been to 5 schools and seeks to enroll in two more. He has built a research center to work out of and uses it to help write, speak and engage the issues that impact the world. He continues his research of prophecy that he sees as Prophetic Intel, the future as God gives in scripture as it relates to the end of days and the beginning of forever.
As a 'demonologist' (a researcher of and 35 + years of doing 'exorcisms'- deliverance ministry) he has studied both the scriptures and has researched the underworld for over 40 years. This has led to the vast work he doing right now as he engages the underground of satan ritual abuse, human trafficking and the global network of what the scripture calls THE MYSTERY OF LAWLESSNESS.
Coming out of the 60's into the 70's Russ was a rock n roll bar fighting seeker, consuming drugs, alcohol and searching through every door he could to find some meaning. He was a dabbler in dark occultism and a practitioner of golden Buddha meditation where he was trained in astral projection to seek the ascended masters.... Russ says "I sought to experience anything spiritually or supernatural and alternative I could ....I wanted to find something, some point for living this life." But I didn't, instead I found myself on the edge of death and hell itself.... see more in the upcoming autobiography 'Once Blind'.

Once blind tells his life story: .... "None of the finite spirits or counterfeit spirituality led me to God. It was only when a man so filled with the Spirit of God unleashed on me the love, power and message of Jesus Christ that I found my answer".
When I accepted-received the living Christ into my life in September 1975 the blinders came off and the presence, power and love of God came in. The clarity between the deception of darkness (even when masqueraded as light) and the truth that is in Jesus filled my life and changed it forever! It's not a religion, not a set of rules...it's an awesome relationship with GOD, knowing God is not only possible, God loves you and wants you.
It is the living Jesus who came 2000 years ago fulfilling hundreds of prophecies, He was foretold in prophecy, conceived and born unlike anyone else in human history. He lived free from sin and evil, showed us what God is, does and says. He now gives to all who come to Him His power, new life, help and the presence of the coming (glorification) …..indestructible, irreversible immortality. He came seeking us/you and I and no one wants us more than God does. 1 Timothy 2
He came to conquer radical evil, sin, death, hell and satan. He went to the Cross... died, rose from the dead and ascended to heaven from where He came. He is the Living Savior....Alive right now, seeking you also and is coming back soon. Read the supernatural living Words that the Spirit of God has given to all humanity. The Book of John.
