*As previously reported, recently surfaced clips of controversial Pastor John Gray show him alluding to his infidelity and telling his church that he and wife Aventer were at the brink of divorce last year.
The clips come on the heels of the backlash he received last month for buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus for their eighth wedding anniversary. But rumors are swirling that he gifted his wife the pricey vehicle to buy her silence after he cheated and fathered a child with his side chick.
Now the pastor has revealed that he and Mrs. Gray will be hosting a relationship conference, billed “Align,” at their South Carolina church next month, per christianpost.com. The site also breaks down the couple’s testimony in the newly surfaced clips, in which Aventer explained to the congregation why she chose not to leave her husband, saying she “put scripture on that strange woman” who reportedly tried to infiltrate her marriage.

“I prayed for them and him and then the devil loses,” Aventer 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 later spoke of a “strange woman.”
“I put Scripture on that strange woman,” she shouted. “I put Scripture on that strange woman. She don’t want it with me and she don’t want it with y’all, amen!”
She noted that while she was heartbroken over her husband’s shenanigans, she wasn’t about to give up on her marriage.
“However, when the word is inside of you and you know what your position is, everything else is false. I know who I am. I am the rib that God took from him. I’m his rest in brokenness — RIB — rest in brokenness,” she said as the congregation shouted and applauded.
“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.
“He was coming for y’all, that’s why he came for us. We know better. We know better,” she said. “I see you devil but you don’t want it with me. I get in the eyes of the devil, you hear me? You can’t have this here devil. I don’t care. I just look cute but the devil don’t want it with me.”
