The conference announcement comes weeks after the pastor was forced to defend his decision to purchase his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus for their anniversary. But rumors are swirling that he gave his wife the pricey vehicle to buy her silence after he cheated and fathered a child with his side chick.
Gray admitted to his church that he had marital troubles and last summer he opened up about how for two years they had contemplated divorce.
“What they didn’t see is that for the last two years we weren’t sure if we would even make it. This is what the people saw,” he said while fake smiling, the report states, “but they didn’t see the tears at night. They didn’t see the times when one of us was sleeping on the couch because the argument. We had to keep smiling because even though we were struggling and even though I was failing as a husband, I was already in front of the people and the people can’t receive my brokenness because where do leaders go when they bleed? Because sheep don’t do well with blood so I had to bleed alone,” Gray said.
“What’s strange is that I traveled the whole world and the Holy Ghost showed up and me and my wife just kept smiling and nobody knew that we were getting ready to get a divorce. Because as long as I kept producing nobody cared what was happening at home. Because as long as we can use you, we will and when you fail we’ll find someone else. Just do me a favor, keep smiling, keep producing, fly all over the world, fight for everybody else’s family while your own marriage is falling apart. While your kids are crying for you every night, wondering when daddy’s coming home but you’re doing the best you can to provide,” he added.
Gray didn’t specify how he failed as a husband but explained that when his wife discovered that he started “listening to the wrong voices and let some people get too close … she set it off just like a good wife should.”
Mrs. Gray then explained to the congregation why she chose not to leave her husband.
“I prayed for them and him and then the devil loses,” she said to applause. “’Cause what’s not gonna happen is you tell me that I’m gonna lose my purpose because somebody whispered to a 16-year-old John? The devil is a liar. I’m staying with my husband and you can go back to the pits of Hell where you came from.”
She added, “So you want me to leave my husband because you spoke to the 16-year-old that couldn’t get a date? And he listened. So I’m supposed to leave my husband because you spoke to a place of brokenness that had not yet been submitted back to the Father? But because I know the tricks of the enemy and I’m learning them every day, I can stand here in boldness for everybody that tried to sneak in, thank you, because I got closer to God because of it. I got in that word … come on devil, you don’t want it with me.”
She noted that she indeed was heartbroken over her husband’s shenanigans but she wasn’t giving up on their marriage.
“I’m standing with my husband and you can go on back to the pits of Hell where you came from. Was I upset? Yes. Was I heartbroken? Yes. But you better learn to get in there for the, what’s the vows? Better and worse so when the worst shows up you don’t run away. When the worst shows up you pray.
“Until he wakes up and understand who he is, you pray wife, while the devils run away. I’m not saying to sit there in perpetual foolishness. I’m saying pray the devils away. If you give up too soon he wins.
