Fans Now Beleive That Is Why Pastor John Gray Bought His Wife A $200,000 Lamborghini

Pastor John Gray is known as the senior pastor at Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina. He first went viral when he purchased a $200,000 Lamborghini for his wife Aventer Gray for their December anniversary.
The pastor received much criticism from members of the megachurch for the purchase. But they now see exactly why he made the elaborate purchase. During their New Year’s Eve service, Pastor Gray told the crowded church that he and his wife were on the verge of divorcing because he was “failing as a husband.”
He explained things had been following apart in their marriage for two years but they acted as if everything was okay.
“For the last two years, we weren’t even sure if we were going to make it. [Because] this is what the people saw,” Gray said as he smiled alongside his wife at the pulpit. “This is what the people saw, but they didn’t see the tears at night, they didn’t see the times when one of us was sleeping on the couch.”

He continued: “We had to keep smiling even though we were struggling. Even though I was failing as a husband, I was already in front of the people and the people can’t really receive my brokenness because where do leaders go when they bleed?”
“So I had to bleed alone. And what’s strange is I traveled the whole world and the Holy Ghost showed up and people got saved and [I] and wife just kept smiling and nobody knew we were getting ready to get a divorce. Because as long as I kept producing, nobody cared what was happening at home,” he added.
Pastor Gray admitted to his wrongdoing.
“I started listening to the wrong voices and let some people get too close. She found out and she set it off, just like a good wife should.”
Despite their differences, the couple is still together.
“I was talking to my wife, saying I don’t think it’s going to work out. I think we need to go our separate ways. For the haters watching online, hoping that it was the end, we’re still together,” Pastor Gray said.
Aventer then stepped up to the mic and said how the devil was attacking her marriage.
“The devil is alive. I’m standing with my husband and you can go back to the pits of Hell where you came from,” Aventer shouted. “Was I upset? Yes. Was I heartbroken? Yes, but you better learn how to get into there for, what’s the vows? For better and worse. When the worse shows up you don’t run away.”
She continued: “I see you devil, but you don’t want it with me. I put scripture on that strange woman. I put scripture on that strange woman. She don’t want it with me.”
During another sermon Pastor Gray confessed to having suicidal thoughts when his marriage was in shambles.
“I literally thought about how I could end my life and still get to heaven and somehow my kids would not be scared, but there was no way I could figure out how to do it… 2018 was the worst year of my life,” Pastor Gray said.
Under Pastor T.D Jakes leadership, Pastor Gray was able to overcome his thoughts of suicide. During a church service held on Sunday, Pastor Jakes said a prayer for Pastor Gray which made him drop to the floor.
“There’s too much anointing in this room to minister to everybody else and leave you sitting over there festering, and festering, and festering, especially, you said it in a joking way, but especially when the spirit of suicide hangs around your house, trying to get you back. I call it out,” Pastor Jakes said.
Pastor Jakes continued: “You don’t get to run, You don’t get to hide. You don’t get to quit, you don’t get to faint. You don’t get to do any of that. Cause it’s not a stage you prayed for. It’s not a building that you prayed for. It’s not an opportunity you prayed for. You’ve always wanted God to make a man out of you. And he’s using the stage to make a man out of you. He’s using the building to make a man out of you. He’s using the opportunity to make a man out of you.”
