Hi brother Jesse.

John 13:36-37. Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

" Something we know Peter couldn't do.

Peter couldn't Agape the Lord the way he thought he could, "

And in the English it's not obvious but in

John 21:15 he basically admits it using phileo to answer the Lord.

"Yea, Lord thou knowest that I love thee "

not Agape as the Lord asked.

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.

The 3rd time the Lord asked he also used phileo, Instead of Agape and Peter wept.

What Peter couldn't do in John 13:36-37,

( Follow the Lord to his death )

The Lord tells him it's what he's "GOING" to do in John 21:18-19.

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.

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

Once filled with the Holy Spirit Peter preached the Gospel boldly knowing his fate was death.

It's amazing what we can do when the Spirit of God is in you.

You can know the scripture and walk alongside Christ but without the Holyspirit baptism WHEN YOU TRULY BELIEVE. it means nothing.

Matthew 7:22-23. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.



God bless.

Thanks Brother Jesse!!

That's it, and in much more detail.

This time I will hold on to this treasure and not forget where I pasted it.


Goodnight and God bless.
