No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, the One being into the bosom of the Father, that One declared Him.
And the Father, the One having sent Me, has Himself borne witness about Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor have you seen His form.
No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son declared him…. Since the Son came out of the bosom of the Father who is God and eternal; then,The Son that came out of the bosom of the Father must be eternal and God in flesh. God the Father is the one that hasn’t been seen according to John 1:18
Since no one has seen God (The Father) at anytime, The Jehovah that appeared in the old covenant era had to be the pre incarnate Son of God who declared God in flesh …who came out of the bosom of the Father. The Father is Jehovah. The Son is also Jehovah since he is the only one that put Jehovah on display in the old covenant era and the new covenant era. No one has seen God the Father at anytime
24 ¶ And Jehovah (on the ground)rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from Jehovah out of the heavens.
No one has seen God the father in heaven at anytime except the Son declared him. The Jehovah standing on earth with 2 feet that rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah (must be the pre incarnate Son of God) from Jehovah in the heavens.
14 And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM; and He said, You shall say this to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.
15 And God said to Moses again, You shall say this to the sons of Israel, Jehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial from generation to generation.

The Lord God is One …Mark 12:29
6 Jesus says to him, I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father if not through Me.
7 If you had known Me, you know My Father also; and from now on you do know Him, and have seen Him.
2 Even as You gave to Him authority over all flesh, so that to all which You gave to Him, He may give to them everlasting life.
3 And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the One whom You sent.
Comment– no one gets to God the Father except they go through Jesus Christ. No one gets to God worshipping a false Jesus and no one knows God unless they know the biblical Jesus Christ… That eliminates a lot of belief systems. To know the only true God and Jesus Christ is everlasting life
