Yes, Jesus and his disciples did perform all mentioned. And Jesus is not a respecter of persons. We can also do all that, but believe me that is not in Jesus best interest for he said we would do greater works!
Because healings, casting out demons and raising the dead does not save you or the one being minister to; they're just signs. He did and I know you probably know also that he did many miracles before others as the 5,000 besides women and children being a witness of his power. Yes they sought to get rid of him, but his time was not yet! What does that tell us? That his death is not appointed by men, but by him; neither is ours appointed by men. Neither is the Father in favor of that by his own Words: “I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth.” But they hated him and they killed him and as they did it to him they did it to us, for he died in our stead. They did hate and kill us. For when one becomes a born again “Christians” we become one with Him. Let me verify this. He ask us to ask anything in his name and he’ll do it; and you sure can’t receive it if you’re going to get killed. He ask us to teach through out the world the gospel in the name of the Father, The Son and the Holyghost. A person about to die couldn’t perform this. He said he would pray the Father and send the Holyspirit back to abide with us forever. We couldn’t receive it if death was awaiting us. I’m just showing how he was thinking when he stated those words. Now let’s move forward to the Greater works. Although Jesus was fed up with doing miracles because people wanted them and not obedience. And he did send his disciples forth with miracles, but that was only to show God’s power and help spread the Truth. He himself felt and said there will be no more miracles with the exception of him being in the grave and being raised the third day similar to Jonah and the whale.
So then let us look at the “...greater works....” Our Lord said he would no longer be the mediator between us and the Father because the Father himself loves us. And Our Father himself said: “This is my son hear Him.” So what is the “greater work” or what is it that Jesus instructed us to do besides spreading his Words/the gospel? It was to do and instruct others to confront the/our Father ourselves for again the Father himself loves us. So if anyone desires anything and anything covers everything in the form of a miracle or healing or whatever, even casting out demons that we should ask the Father. Jesus taught us how to address him in prayer: “Our Father which art in heaven....” In secret and the Father who sees in secret will reward us openly. That’s the GREATEST WORK! Having faith in God, our Father and going forth with the gospel forever.
As for raising the dead, like other miracles it was for show only. And not in God’s best interest for his desire is to save you from death and hell. Oh Heaven! Well remember Heaven is not an actual place, but Truth: “The Kingdom of God is within and comes not by observation.” The “wages of sin is death” whereas one who dies has already been judged. As mentioned bringing one back was for show only to show that God has all power and is. “I am the way, the truth and the life.” “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter (The Holyspirit, The Truth), that he may abide with you forever; ...”

*Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

P.S.S. “....for my Father is greater than I.”
