If you are pondering the activity of glory quest, take a look at the meaning of the words. Let’s begin with the word quest. It is a search, or the seeking and pursuit of something. And what we are seeking and pursuing is the presence of our God. This Presence is often referred to as the glory or the glory realm. And Joshua Mills gives this explanation (excerpted from a full message):
The glory realm is the realm of eternity; it’s the realm beyond space and time. In this realm we begin to receive revelation from heaven and we begin to experience God releasing miracles that take dominion over time.
God created time,… [Genesis 1:14-18]
God is not bound by time; he exists outside of it. God dwells and abides in the realm of the glory, which is the realm of eternity.
He transcends time and exists outside of it. He is the beginning and the end. [Revelation 22:13]
The Word of God becomes our foundation to understanding the glory realm, to understanding this realm of eternity, to understanding the fact that our impossibilities become possibilities with God, that nothing is impossible for those that believe, and nothing is too difficult for God.
As we begin to embrace the Word, believe the Word, speak the Word, walk in the Word, the glory of God comes forth. And as the glory begins to come forth, God begins to usher in that realm of eternity which is the realm of ease where suddenly we’re no longer restricted by the dimensions of the earthly confinements….

It is in the glory realm where God’s thoughts can become ours, his words can become ours, his ways can become ours. We can begin to see as Jesus saw and hear as Jesus heard of the Father. Then we can be enabled to do as Jesus did in the world – Supernaturally.
Tradition, ritual, and church-as-usual will not accomplish this, only relationship with God and submission to his Spirit. Glory Quest is a training ground for this endeavor.
