"I'm actually fighting devils that weren't scheduled for me; they were scheduled for my dad but because my dad didn't fight them, I'm fighting his and mine. That's why I gotta fight my devils and my dad's, so my son doesn't have to fight mine because I don't need him fighting with three generations of stuff,” Gray added.
The charismatic minister then stood in front of his son and turned the conversation toward the devil.
“I need to get in front of him and say, 'No devil, you can't have him, you can't have my family, you can't have my son, you can't have my seed, you can't have my legacy,” Gray declared. He then turned to the congregation to set the record straight. "And this is my son, my only son in whom I'm well pleased," Gray declared as he pointed to his children. "That's my daughter, my only begotten daughter in whom I'm well pleased, period!"
Last summer, Gray opened up to his church explaining that for about two years he and his wife had been contemplating 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, "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.
Despite their problems, the megachurch leaders kept going.
Aventer also addressed the congregation explaining why she chose not to leave her husband despite his unspecified actions.
"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."
