“God’s blessed me with a huge platform to Evangelize and to use for good,” was a major message from Mike at The FAMILY Leader Foundation’s “Faith in Leadership, America’s Need for Revival” in Des Moines, Iowa.
The event featured Vice President Mike Pence, along with the U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg, Bob Vander Plaats, and Mike as speakers.
Pence “championed the vital role that Christians have played in shaping our nation…It has been people of faith, I believe with all of my heart, who have led us toward a more perfect union, and I want to congratulate and thank each and every one of you for being a part of that great American tradition.”
Following this sentiment, Mike was introduced by Bob Vander Plaats saying, “Every platform that he (Mike) has he uses to advance the Kingdom of God.”
Towards that, Mike said that he “gave a message to the world” about the Bible and God to “a hundred million people” when he gave his presentation at the White House coronavirus briefing.
Mike then went on to talk about how he had “a calling” while he was a crack cocaine addict. Mike was then, “by the grace of God,” set free from all his addictions on January 16, 2009. Based on his life, Mike thought his calling was to help people come out of addiction. But now he knows that it is to “lead people to Jesus.”
When he came out of his addictions, he saw “all these things that had changed” which caused him to ask, “What do you mean that marriage isn’t between a man and a woman anymore,” and, “What do you mean they are killing the unborn?”
“Friends were all losing their houses and their jobs, and everything was in chaos,” Mike continued. Shocked, he asked, “What is going on?”
Then, things started happening that made him “come to the Lord.” Before President Trump announced his candidacy, Mike had a dream that he was going to see Trump someday.
He then went to a National Prayer Breakfast where “he was picked out of a room of 12 people to pray with Ben Carson.” During the meeting, someone in the room said that “a couple of you in the room are going to become great friends and change the course of history.” And, “Ben and I are best friends to this day.”
Later, Mike was on a plane to California and he received “a message from Donald Trump saying, ‘Mike, will you meet me in Trump Tower in New York City?”
So, the dream had come true, and Mike met with Trump. During their meeting, they talked about Christianity, Mike’s crack addiction, and how Trump was going to “stop addiction and keep the drugs from pouring in.” Based on this meeting, Mike went “all in” for Trump.
Mike then learned how politics played a role “in our faith” and “how all the decisions that have been made are against Christianity.” As Mike says, it’s not about this election, it’s about spiritual warfare.
Mike is now helping in politics “because of my faith.” Plus, his Lindell Recovery Network will help bring “millions of addicts back to the church.” As Mike says, it’s the “opportunity of a lifetime to get people to Jesus.”
“People don’t look to hope unless there is something bad going on. Addiction is bad and they are looking for a way out. In fact, “everybody is looking for hope” during this pandemic, so it is “the opportunity of a lifetime.” For, “Where’s that hope? The hope is in the church, and that hope is Jesus.” So, “we have an opportunity for the biggest revival in history.”
Towards this, Mike “gets behind the Family Leader 100%.” They “do more than any organization to help people understand how the politics in this election make it the most important election in history.”
“God has been taken out of our schools and classrooms.” To illustrate, there’s “a poll of inmates in prison that found that zero percent said that they got married, planned their child, had their child, and were still married in prison. That’s how important God is to our family and country.”
Mike ended by saying “God’s blessed me with a huge platform to Evangelize and use for good.” Every day, Mike prays that “God guides my path.” Mike then ended with Proverbs 3:5-6:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.
