    John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

    This was fulfilled by the disciples after Pentecost through healings and miracles (Acts 3:6 Acts 6:8).

    John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

    14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

    The disciples believed on the name of Jesus and were given the greater works of miracles to glorify God.

    John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    Jesus doing whatsoever was asked was conditional upon the disciples keeping his commandments.

    John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

    Receiving whatsoever was asked was conditional upon the disciples being fruitful.

    1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

    Once again it is repeated in 1 John that for believing Israel receiving whatsoever is asked is dependent upon keeping his commandments.
