John 14:22 (KJV)
Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
Thaddeus also known as the writer of Jude, asks the question, “How is it that Jesus will manifest Himself to believers and not the rest of the world?” The answer follows:
Through the Word
Those who love the Lord keep His Word and find Christ in it.
Through the Comforter
The Holy Spirit living in us is real. We sense His presence, receive direction from Him and are given power through Him.
Paul will call it “peace that passeth all understanding“. We can’t explain it. A person must possess it or be left to misunderstand it.
A question we might ask today is, “Why would He manifest Himself to us and not to the world?” I believe the answer to that question is that He would have all men to be saved, not just aware of His being. Salvation is a faith issue. If He were manifest to them they would have no faith because, according to Romans 8:24, For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
 Philippians 4:7
