Pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood received a standing ovation on Friday when he made “Q” gestures during a speech and appeared to link the QAnon conspiracy to a religious revival in the U.S.
Wood, a prominent Georgia lawyer, was speaking at the Health and Freedom Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He told the crowd that former President Donald Trump had won the 2020 election and was still president.
He also took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Opposition to COVID-19 public health measures like facemasks was a major feature of the conference.
Wood spoke about people worshiping Satan and said “millions” of children had disappeared around the world.
The QAnon conspiracy theory posits that there is an international cabal of Satanists who abduct children and its members include prominent businessmen and politicians.
He told the audience that there was a “battle between good and evil” and went on to discuss his belief in the role that God would play in it.
“It would end permanently until the Bible says it will because every word in the Bible is true,” Wood said. “But we’re getting ready to go through the second harvest. There’s gonna be a revival in America.”
The “second harvest” is a reference to the biblical Book of Revelation which some Christians believe predicts what will happen at the end of the word. Some Christians believe part of those predictions have already come to pass.
Wood briefly discussed his personal life and his four divorces, jokingly comparing himself to the Hebrew King David, who had nine wives, to the appreciation of the crowd.
“But God forgave me, for as I’ve come to believe, God planned it,” Wood said. “He plans every detail of your life. He knows how many hairs are on your beautiful head. And he uses your sins and he uses your shortcoming to teach you so that when the time comes that he’s ready and you’ve been learning – watch out for this next move.”
“He’s going to rebirth you into the spirit world and create exactly the person that he intended you to be,” Wood said while drawing a “Q” with his right index finger.
“There’s your Q,” he said, drawing the letter in the air again. “Q!”
The audience applauded and some began cheering in what quickly turned into a standing ovation for Wood as he made another “Q”.
“That is Q,” he said. “What that Q mean?”
“Don’t you ever give up hope on this country,” Wood continued and went on to praise Trump, saying they had spoken by phone following the presidential election and claiming the Republican had won in November.
“He won the presidency and he is the person that we the people selected,” Wood said. “Donald J. Trump is still the president of the United States of America. He is your president.”
