If only Jesus can save mankind, why did not Yahweh tell mankind?

God's greatest and highest demand in the Bible is the demand for submission to authority. A person may try to please God by his offering of sacrifices. He may try to work for the Lord and in the name of the Lord to honor Him; yet it is only in obedience and submission that there can be an absolute honoring of God and an exaltation of His name, His will and His purpose. But just as submission to authority is the greatest demand of God, it is the greatest problem and failure of God's creatures. Disobedience to authority is the reason for the rebellion of Satan; it is also the cause of the fall of man.

A. Obedience is the first law of heaven.
1. It was decreed in heaven that all blessings are predicated upon obedience (see D&C 130:20–21 Deuteronomy 11:8, 26–27 ).
2. We came to earth to prove our willingness to obey (see Abraham 3:24–25 D&C 98:14 ).
3. Obedience must be voluntary (see Abraham 3:25–26 Helaman 14:30–31 ).
4. Commandments are given to us because God loves us and wants us to become like Him (see Deuteronomy 6:24–25 D&C 25:15 3 Nephi 12:48 ).
5. Our obedience to God’s commandments is an expression of our love for Him (see John 14:15, 21, 23 1 John 5:3 D&C 42:29 ).
6. It is important to obey God even when we may not fully understand the commandment (see Moses 5:5–6 1 Nephi 3:7 ).
7. The Lord chastens the Saints because He loves them (see Hebrews 12:6 D&C 95:1 Helaman 15:3 Revelation 3:19 ).
8. We should obey God rather than man (see Acts 5:29 ).
B. The Lord promises great blessings to those who obey His commandments.
1. The Lord promises both temporal and spiritual blessings to those who obey His commandments (see Mosiah 2:41 Leviticus 26:3–12 Deuteronomy 4:40 D&C 58:2 64:34 130:21 ).
2. Obedience in this life will give us an advantage in the world to come (see D&C 130:19 ).
3. The Lord will provide a way for us to obey all His commandments (see 1 Nephi 3:7 17:3 ).
4. Obedience to divine law makes us free (see John 8:31–32 ).
C. Disobedience is a serious offense in the eyes of the Lord.
1. We offend God by disobeying His commandments (see D&C 59:21 Ephesians 5:6 ).
2. Disobedience to the commandments will bring serious temporal and spiritual consequences (see Leviticus 26:14–32 Jeremiah 11:3 D&C 1:14 56:3 2 Nephi 9:27 ).

Yet, even though God demands this submission to his authority, he decides to cede it to his son???

Excuse me? This god which has demanded complete obedience suddenly decides to let his son be in charge? Based on what? 

John 14:6

New International Version (NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Jesus made that arbitrary statement himself.

But how do we know that this claim is true?
Anyone can make such bizarre and uncorroborated claims. In fact, many other god-men from other religions have made this claim.

For this to have been credible, it should have come from Yahweh direct.
Why didn't Yahweh EVER say to anyone that he had a son called Jesus and that anyone who wanted to go to heaven would have to accept Jesus as the ONLY possible saviour.

Why did Yahweh demand blind obedience to himself instead of saying to the whole of mankind : if you want to be saved you have to worship my son Jesus?? But Yahweh NEVER mentions that he even has a son. Why?
The odd thing here is that a statement of such momentous importance for the salvation of mankind, should have come directly by Yahweh himself.

If the Jesus claim is indeed true, Yahweh should have warned mankind that there is no point worshiping or sucking up to Yahweh, but they should direct their prayers to his son Jesus, because no one can have salvation except through the son.
It is not as if god the father was unaware that Jesus existed. According to the story, Jesus is part of the Trinity, is god, and has been around as long as god the father has been. Which is forever, since they are supposed to be without origin.
