Hi
Moving on

    Thomas said to him, ?Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?? Jesus said to him, ?I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.?
John 14:5-‬7 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.5-7.ESV       


What wonderful words from our Lord as the son of God he is the image of his Father if you have seen one you have seen the other.
But we can only come to the Father through Christ he is the only way to the Father so we must take every word he has spoken his self and through his Apostles and not forgetting the OT they are all Gods word

   Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart     

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

     Philip said to him, ?Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.? Jesus said to him, ?Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ?Show us the Father?? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works.
John 14:8-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.8-10.ESV       


Again our Lord tell his decipels if they had see him they had seen the Father everything Christ says and dose comes from the Father when he heals the sick and raises the dead the power to do these miracles comes from the Father.
Our Lord is also the word of God all the words of scripture comes through Christ from the Father.
So we see the Father and the son through the word we have been given and they are both in agreement.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

    Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. ?Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
John 14:11-‬14 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.11-14.ESV     


Hi
I think we have to realise that our Lord is speaking to his decipels those he has chosen and we know they did perform miracles in his name.
As for the rest of us yes we should pray to the Farther as instructed by our Lord and if it is the Fathers will then he will grant it.
So let us pray for the will of the Father to be done as we have it in scripture let us pray for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ in power and great glory and let us pray for his word to be spread to the ends of the earth.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

      ?If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
John 14:15-‬17 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.15-17.ESV     


If we love God and love our neighbours we keep all the laws of God given to Israel these laws tells us what sin is and if we break any of these laws we sin.
Then our Lord tell his decipels whom he has chose of the Holy Spirit that they would receive as their helper the world cannot receive the spirit it is only for the chosen.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

     ?I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.?
John 14:18-‬21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.18-21.ESV     


Here our Lord is speaking to his chosen he would be with them through the spirit he would be in them and them in him and he would be in the Father.
He also tells them the world will see him no more but they will see him he also tells them because he lives they will also live here our Lord is speaking of eternal life.
We also keep his commandments all of which are incorporated in

   And he said to him, ?You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.?
Matthew 22:37-‬40 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.22.37-40.ESV

Hi
Moving on

  Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, ?Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?? Jesus answered him, ?If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father?s who sent me.
John 14:22-‬24 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.22-24.ESV     


I suppose we have all asked the same question at times why don't you show your self to the world and of course he has shown himself through the word of God he has given to us from Genesis to Revelation through all the prophecies that have come true concerning him and the Father and all the wonderful stories about the people he has chosen to further his work here on earth.
So it is essential that we read the word of God on a regular basis in it we will find our Lord.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

     ?These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
John 14:25-‬26 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.25-26.ESV         


Here our Lord gives the promise of the Holy spirit which the Father will send after the ascension of our Lord which will allow them to recall all the words of Christ who is the word of God so the Holy Spirit will teach them and they will teach us and this has happened and is still happening around the world.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

      Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, ?I am going away, and I will come to you.? If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
John 14:27-‬28 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.14.27-28.ESV     


What is Christs peace the apostles did not have an easy life and some had horrible deaths but in all this they had a full knowledge of things to come and where they were going and this gave them the strength to endure all hardships and of course they had the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
Here our Lord also tells them he is going to the Father and that they should rejoice over this because this is the place all believers want to be and will be in the last day.

Love and Peace
Dave
