To spend time with attorney Lin Wood is to be energized, empowered, have your faith amped up and wonder why he didn't become an evangelist. In addition to faith, he has an equal dose of good old-fashioned common sense.
In a digital world where every pronouncement is audience-tested and filtered, Wood speaks from his heart and years of representing a half-century of celebrity clients. These include Richard Jewell, the security guard who was falsely blamed for the Atlanta Olympics bombing; the family of JonBenet Ramsey; former Congressman Gary Condit; Herman Cain; the victim of Kobe Bryant; Nicholas Sandmann; and of course former President Donald J. Trump.
"I found God when I was 14 in my local Baptist church and, after giving a sermon at my church, was told by those at the church that God had called me to be a preacher," Wood says. "I went away from the Lord at 16 when my beloved mother died—but God never walked away from me."
He went on to testify: "Two years ago, at 66, I was diagnosed with a macular hole in my eye from a degenerative disease and was forced by the treatment to keep my head down until it healed. I was suddenly faced with my mortality and began to look back at my life and ask what it had all been about.
"At the height of my illness, I began to reach the 23rd Psalm every night and was confronted with the simple fact that God is real. I surrendered my life to Him."
Wood joins an emerging army led of the so-called "deplorables" who are leading what he and many others believe is a spiritual awakening. In many ways, this awakening is taking place apart from the established church, led by those who have often found Christ late in life, after turbulent lifestyles.
Their attitudes contrast with those of some who have grown up in the church and take so much for granted.
Trump first invited Wood to the White House on March 11, 2020, near the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. From that time, he has supported the president in multiple legal challenges.
Stephen Strang, bestselling author whose upcoming release is God and Cancel Culture, wrote: "A second term for President Trump is vital to America's well-being so he can finish the job he has started and fulfill his unique calling as America's political reformer," echoing Daniel 2:21:
"It is He who changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who know understanding."
"I believe our president will triumph, and we all need to have faith, have patience and wait on the Lord, in addition to doing all we can to support the president in prayer, showing up at the upcoming rallies and flooding our representatives with calls," Wood says.
"This coming Sunday, we need to pack our churches in a strong sign of support for our faith and our beloved president," Wood says. "In a profound act of spiritual warfare, pack your church this Sunday."
