American pastor, John Gray has been in the news a lot in the previous few months, particularly because of the backlash that trailed after it emerged that he cheated on his wife Aventer Gray then bought her a $200,000 Lamborghini to compensate for his infidelity.
The criticism was so bad that John Gray exposed that he had suicide ideation. Gray, who recently became pastor of Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina, after serving at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Texas, said 2018 was the worst year of his life and that he had fought suicidal feelings..
He alleged in a recording of his sermon to his church on New Year’s Eve:
John said he literally thought about how I could end my life and still get to Heaven and somehow my kids would not be damaged but there was no way I could figure out how to do it. And I’m not the only person that thought about that. I’m not the only person the devil confronted in that area.
John Gray was at a special leadership training session at First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Marlboro, Maryland, on Saturday, Jan 5. There, Bishop TD Jakes exposed to Gray that the spirit of suicide was still lurking in his home. TD Jakes then went ahead to cast out the spirit of suicide from John Gray during a special deliverance session.
When praying for Pastor Gray, Bishop Jakes said:
“I don’t even want to open this up in public because I know how deep it is.
But the Lord, power of the anointing is passing by. There is 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. I’m trying to get you back.”
The Bishop then laid hands on Gray and shouted: “I call it out” as he cast out the spirit of suicide from Gray.
Jakes later said to Gray that God was using the storms in his life to “make a man out of you.”
Anyway a lot of social media users were not awestruck and said Jakes and Gray were trying to make justifications for Gray’s conduct by accusing it on the evil spirit. Some pointed out that we might as well blame the evil spirits for all our actions and no one should ever be held answerable.
Though, there were those who felt that the devil is fighting particularly the men of God which is why Gray is facing such trials. They said it was kind of TD Jakes to step in and offer spiritual provision.
