1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.


2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.


3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.


4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.


5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.


6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.


7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.


8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.


9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.


10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.


11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.


12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.


13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.


14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.


15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.


16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.


17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.


18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.


19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.


20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?


21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?


22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.


23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?


24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.


25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

When I  bring this question to mind and ponder on it, Lord am I doing the assignment  and using the gifts that you have given  me to do on this earth? In this chapter it really touched my heart when I see the words--------"What is that to thee? Follow thou me". Wow this is just the message I needed.


"The Lord`s Words  "FOLLOW ME" has brought new JOY and more LOVE to my heart. We as Hebrew women should keep our eyes on Jesus instead of on any circumstance or doubt.


Lord , let me and my Hebrew sisters not be distracted by ourselves, our circumstances,  or believe it or not other Hebrew Christians  that may have us to disobey God and get detoured out of the Will of God.  Let me and my Beautiful Hebrew sisters keep our eyes of Faith on you alone! I thank you Lord that we have received the invitation to be changed from Unbelief to CONFIDENCE.  Even from Fear to COURAGE. Can't thank you enough Lord for the Gift of Eternal Life!!!!!! Also Lord,  thank you for using  Our First Lady thru this study  to do her part (her assignment) to help us to GLORIFY you more Lord. Thank you Lord for all of our life-changing revelations!  In Jesus Name!

K Lockett



Verse 25 is my favorite!  Jesus did so much, it's impossible to tell it all!


I have really enjoyed listening hard to hear what God is saying through the word.  I have also really enjoyed reading the sisters' revelations!

L Chavis


Peter stands out to me in chapter 21. When given another chance to embrace our Savior, he didn't let guilt, his past, the snare of men, or anything hold him back. After witnessing all the miracles, the suffering, the crucifixion, the resurrection & now the third appearance of Jesus, Peter was truly a faithful willing vessel. Peter was different, a changed man of God, no more doubt, no more denial.  When John said to Peter that it was the Lord at the sea, Peter jumped in the sea & swam to Jesus with no doubt like when he walked on the water previously. Jesus questioned Peter's loyalty 3 times. It's the same number of times Peter denied him.  This had to remind Peter of the time he thought he was loyal to Jesus yet denied Him 3 times. Thank God for his loving kindness & giving us all another chance. Peter was fully restored, healed, & forgiven. He was now ready to prove his loyalty by feeding God's sheep. God's love covers a multitude of sin, blemish, pain, and disappointment. No greater love, thank you Abba.

Oh the experience of breaking bread with the women of God is so amazing. Deep brings out deep & real recognizes real. This studying brings out a RAMAH word. So many different revelations. This fast & study has truly blessed my soul. Love you WOG

S Felton


John 21:25

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

This speaks to me past, present, and future. It attest to me that we serve a living God. A God that is still working and moving in the lives of all. A sovereign God in control of ALL things. (Let not your hearts be troubled..)

This study how been enlightening. So glad to have God breath on the embers within me to ignite a fire (to echo my Pastor) that last the rest of 2018 and beyond.  I take away from this book the love we should have for one another and the souls of men.  I always had the urge to get upset with the Pharisees, Pilate, Peter, Judas, (all the Characters who in some way let Jesus down), but the Spirit always made me turn that mirror on myself and show me a time when I acted as they did. The conviction was good and if we never forget “That Day” (as Deacon Dell preached) we are more likely to win the souls of others for The Kingdom and more importantly strive not allow the past to repeat itself. Grateful He chose me!

D Chevalier



15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah,[b] do you love Me more than these?”


I believe that Jesus asks this same question of me (and all of his disciples) today:

 __________ (my name, your name), do You love ME more than these (people, material things/possessions, children, spouses, cars, careers, approval of others,etc).


**Like Peter, there have been times in the past where I professed outwardly to love Him more but when situations arose, trials & tribulations

came, my actions and reactions proved who and/or what really had my heart.


**This fast has helped me SO MUCH & this study of the book of John (thank you Lord & First Lady) has renewed my Love for Our Lord Yeshua!! He is truly my heart's desire and completes me--filling voids and places in my life that I previously looked to others and to material things to satisfy... THANK YOU LORD, ABBA, YESHUA, for showing me through this season that YOU REALLY ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH!!

S Joseph


I enjoyed our 21 day readings. The women expounded on such beautiful verses and shared awesome revelations and some heart-felt words of their struggles. I can relate and feel the unity of sisterhood.  "As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread" John 21:9 KJV

My soul had gotten so full and eyes swelled with tears when the diciples reached land with a welcoming meal from THE LORD. As they experienced being in HIS presence from the length of time they did, to witness HIS death and return to their occupation, I imagine fishing couldn't be the same.  After experiening life from THE LIFE how empty their world had become. It was to me as HE does for us. Being in the midst of the ocean of deep dark waters represent deep troubles of life when we fail to see hope. We sometimes feel empty like the net was before HE made HIS presence known. For us when we enter into HIS HOUSE find that fish upon hot coals (THE WORD ) to fill us or while in worship and HIS presence fills the room. Oooooh what joy.

L McMahon


And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.  Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

John 21:6‭-‬7 KJV


Wow! Jesus spoke, they obeyed, and they got blessed! The disciple whom Jesus loved (John or James?),  was the first to know this was not just a move of God but this IS GOD . What a relationship?!?!  💕I want to be in a place where I KNOW,THAT I KNOW, THAT I KNOW when God is moving and when I'm in His presence. I don't want anyone to have to tell me when HE is near, I wanna feel Him, smell Him, etc..! I want to be the one that He loves 😀😍💕

I enjoyed this time with everyone. It was pretty cool reading each persons revelations! Kem D., S.Felton, and Shirley J.  just to name a few really blessed me during this time. I would love to study more with the women of God. This was a blessing First Lady💕 Love you!


J Alexander



I have really enjoyed reading John and yes i would love to do this again throughout the year.  It has been amazing to read what everyone shared.  I believe it has connected us in many ways even though we all may not know each other personally we share some of the same feelings and have some of the same dreams and desires.  We share some of the same fears and hurts.  Mostly we all share a love for our Father in heaven.  Know that as your sister in Christ i am praying for u all.

Blessings and Favor S.T


Thank you for being an awesome leader in Christ. I enjoyed this fellowship with you and the sisters. I love reading the responses to the chapters every night. For me this last chapter spoke to the believer who lacks faith. Thomas a disciple of Christ lacked faith. Jesus let them know what was going to happen before it did and he still lacked in his faith, but Christ still loved him. Just the mercy and the grace that God extends to us is amazing. I laugh because I know how I would've reacted to Thomas. Thank God for Jesus who is  an example to myself and the rest of us how to love people and cover them in their short comings. K. Ames


This was such a blessed experience! I really enjoyed this time with all the ladies. Would love to do it again. It really helped to push me to a deeper commitment.

J Collins


A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep. “I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.”  Jesus said this to let him know by what kind of death he would glorify God. Then Jesus told him, “Follow me.” Peter turned around and saw behind them the disciple Jesus loved—the one who had leaned over to Jesus during supper and asked, “Lord, who will betray you?” Peter asked Jesus, “What about him, Lord?” Jesus replied, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me.”

John 21:17‭-‬22 NLT


When I read these verses, the question that came to my mind was "why is Peter worrying about the other disciple?" Jesus told Peter to feed His sheep with the word of God, and He also told Peter the kind of punishment he would face for doing so. I can just imagine his response to Jesus... "Well what about him Lord? You said that this would happen to me but what will happen to him?"  The Lord has a calling for all of us and we can't take our eyes off of our calling to worry about another person's calling because we need to focus on our own calling and do what the Lord has called us to do. And when He calls you to do something, you can't worry about what will He call someone else to do. Sometimes when you are focused on what someone else is doing, it can stir up pride, jealousy, and even envy. You have to be like the songist.... Wherever You want me to go I'll go, Whatever You want me to do I'll do, Whatever You want me to say I'll say, I'll do anything that pleases You! Studying the book of John helped me grow even more in my walk with Christ! I loved reading and growing together with my sisters in Christ! I pray that there would be more studies together in the future! Love y'all beautiful Women of God!  🙌😁😘🍏 🙏

I appreciate you FL discipling us the way you do I pray an abundance of peace joy love anointing and prosperity over you in Jesus name. G2G you're truly a blessing

C Kelly


Wow!! What a way to end... Peter do you love me more than these.. feed my lambs...then, do you love me? Feed my sheep. Then again lovest thou me? Feed my sheep. Like I hear him ask Denise love me more than these... whatever it is that we put before him. Denise do you love me ? My repose, yes Lord, you know I love you ... feed my lambs(babes)and the sheep... show me by taking care of Mines... yes Lord!!!! Every time I read this I get full... because there were times I didn't want to.. but reading it this time I feel different... because this is how I show how I love the Lord... by feeding and caring for his Lambs and sheep!  I have really been bless. Thanks FL and all the ladies. This have been a growing time and I have enjoyed every moment of it. I do look forward to the next study and devotion time.

D. Cormier



This has been an awesome experience. I really enjoyed emailing instead of texting the revelations. The ladies went deep. It enjoyed reading all the devotions. This was a definitely a gift from God.

The scripture that stood out to me is

“Now, there are many other things that Jesus did. If they were all written down one by one, I suppose that the whole world could not hold the books that would be written.”

‭‭John‬ ‭21:25‬ ‭

Reading this last verse was a WOW moment. It is a great reminder not to ever put  our MIGHTY God in a box.  God is big, powerful, and mighty. He is able to do great things beyond our imagination. This word gives me hope right now in my life as I face some seem like impossible situations in my life.  Thank you for your obedience.

L Dean


This has truly been a blessing.. I have never in my life read my bible!! EVER.. God is not only revealing through his word and truth but he is moving!! Philadelphia is such a blessing and to read the revelations from other women of God is food for my soul!! I'm growing as a Christian, as a wife, as a mother and as a friend!! I praise God for a leader like you FL!!  I pray for you everyday that God continues to pour out his favour and blessings in your life to glorify him as we follow you... Love you FL!!!


John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.


Never limit God and put him in a box!! He is infinite!!



The revelation received from reading John 21 is Love( God’s Love for us ❤️) versus Loss/Being Lost ( losing a loved one, sinning without conviction, losing something physical like a limb, losing a house, job, car, or career, abandoned, indebted, powerless, or seeking assistance from a RESOURCE instead of the SOURCE) In verses 3-6 Peter decides to go fishing and the other six disciples went along. Jesus had just died and they deciding to go fishing could be out of desperation or despair after the lost of Jesus. They didn’t catch any fish. Jesus appears and asks, “Children, have ye any meat?” Jesus being all knowing knew they did not have any meat (fish). It’s like us as parents asking our children on a Thursday evening, “Do you have to study”, knowing they have tests on Friday. Jesus already knew what his disciples had need of before he even asked. This exemplified God’s Love ❤️ to me!! He went on further to tell the disciples exactly where to cast the fishing net and that they shall find fish, which they did. This was another way God’s Love 💕 is exemplified. Jesus didn’t say that they might find fish, but rather that they shall find fish, which is a promise. Lastly, this showed me WHAT CAN I DO WITHOUT GOD or WHAT CAN I OBTAIN WITHOUT GOD? ... Absolutely Nothing. I’m powerless, weak, lost and bankrupt without seeking the SOURCE first. This brought me back to John 15:5 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”


This passage also left me with certainty and clarity of God’s Love. If both my parents died today, who could I turn to for guidance and leadership. If I fell sick tonight, who could I turn to for healing. If my husband divorces me or dies tomorrow, who could I turn to for companionship. Not saying any lost is easy, but with God having certainty he will get me through is truly Love 💗 , a promise, and amazing!!!! 😃



The ‭‭experience of studying/praying/digging deeper together enabled me to be accountable and challenged. I pray we can continue this throughout the year to grow as women and as a ministry united by the “True One”. I have enjoyed the journey and reading others revelations. Although, I could not fast from food, I was able to fast from other things that tend to distract me! Thanks FL for orchestrating this and exemplifying true leadership and discipleship!


Love and God Bless 💞,

E. Plumbar


Ch 21:


17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.


I agree with  Simon Peter as he said, Lord thou knowest all things. Yes he even knows if we truly love him or not. He created each and every one of us & knows if we truly answered the call or if the things we do & say toward him are only to please others or some other selfish motive. His scripture says, these people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.


We can hide NOTHING from our Lord and Savior. In the past when I struggled with I'll feelings or that "hidden sin", I was in the habit of  concealing these sins. Hiding these sins only allowed  these same sins to grow because I wasn't exposing the devil & confessing to the Lord something he ALREADY knew.  He was only waiting for me to expose these things & confess it so he could deliver me from them. He already knowest all things, we can hide no thing from him. Once my heart became right, just as he told Simon Peter, he surely knows that I lovest him!


This scripture sharing experience has been a blessing to me.  I've learned so much reading all the sisters' wise revelations on each chapter.  I've  learned so much from these women by just taking the time to learn & humbling myself. I pray these revelations are the beginning of a wonderful tradition for our annual church fast.  Thank you so much for suggesting this fellowship,  it has sown greatly into my life.


Ms. J. Aubry


We made it to the finish line!!!!!! 🏃🏾‍♀️ All glory to God!!!!!!   🙌🏾❤️☝🏾 I want to thank you First Lady, for being a willing vessel to be used by God, (being obedient) and taking the time out of your busy schedule to read each and everyone one of our replies, I pray that God looks down and remembers  you for your good! You took time out to bless women of God, like myself and for that I am forever grateful! I love you ❤️ and thank you! ☺️

My favorite scripture is John 21:17 -

He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Jesus restored Peter back to his position of leadership even though Peter had denied him 3 times before He was crucified! Jesus never ceases to amaze me, it gives me hope to know that even though I mess up and fall short plenty of times, my God loves me and is willing to restore me, once I acknowledge and own up to what I’ve done, repent and turn away from sin!!!!!!! (180 pivot) God’s amazing grace!!!!!! 🙌🏾❤️🙏🏾☝🏾😊

R Fisher


[John 21:5] He called out to them.....As I read chapter 21 of John. He gave me a lot of questions to answer

1. Where do you love stands for Me(Christ)?

2. Do you love me enough to share the gospel to my lost souls?

3. Do you know when you in my presence?

4. Do you believe I will provide for you?

5. Do you know when I'm is testing you?

Wow father I love you my Lord in my heart but you can show me your way how to love you. I can do better by sharing your gospel. I share with some people but be afraid to share with some people as well but you made man mouth so give me strength in that area. I believe that I'm always in your presence. Sometimes I know when you are testing me but sometimes I find out that I've been tested after the test. Providing for me I stumbled little in this area because I see now you not just talkin about financial providing you also talking about my spiritual life do I believe that you provide for me spiritually. strengthen your areas that you need to grow in. Take away your ways and give you mine. I believe that but can you show me how to trust in you because i don't know how to trust and let you provide for me spiritually and

 financially. Take away fear and give me the spirit of boldness with courage and confidence. L.Wright


It has been a pleasure learning with you all, a great experience indeed. Thank you for allowing me to participate even though I did not respond every day.

K Singleton


This has been amazing on so many levels.  ALL GLORY TO THE MOST HIGH.🙌


A special thanks to all who read, or sent devotions, or shared it with a friend.


John's name means "Yahweh is gracious" and truly we have seen this throughout this letter. We have seen Yahweh show compassion, love, kindness, favor, forgiveness both to the lost and to his own.


We have grown and connected on a deeper level as a group....  I believe that we now love and understand each other a little better. 💚This is very important with women, because the devil comes against our relationships so much---so to connect in the spiritual realm has enhanced our love for one another. For that I'm grateful....🙌


I'm looking forward to an amazing year with all you.


My spiritual momma prayer for you is that you would continue to grow inwardly-that you would allow Christ to invade every part of your heart/soul-that you would forgive and let go of the hurts-that you would win souls for Christ-that you would be a Godly example to your family-that you would press in the word all year long-that you would watch your words-that you would make a covenant not to slander your sister-that you would allow God to use your gifts-that you would build up your husband-that you would encourage your children-that you would stay far from the world-that we as a women's ministry would be ONE as our heavenly Father are one....and that the Lord would give you wisdom and discernment for everything you need.


Please remember  pastor, me, and our kiddos in your prayers as we truly covet the prayers of the saints.


Love you deeply.🍏
