What does John 21:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 21:9

As soon then as they were come to land
As soon as they were come out of the ship, and safe on shore, not only Peter, but all the rest of the disciples:

they saw a fire of coals there:
on the shore, to their great surprise:

and fish laid there;
which could not be any that they had taken, for, as yet, the net was not drawn up, and the fish took out:

and bread;
not upon the coals baking, but hard by, being ready prepared to eat with the fish, when sufficiently broiled. This was all of Christ's preparing, and a considerable proof of his deity; and a confirmation of that provision he will make for his ministering servants, whilst they are about his work, and in this world; and a representation of that spiritual and eternal refreshment they shall have with him in heaven to all eternity, when they have done their work.
