Glory Quest Defined

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.

Why Believers Worship

There is a “thin line between worship and warfare.” The closer we commune with the Godhead, something happens that the adversary simply cannot resist — the Glory. He must flee the power of Love. God is love, and as we ascend from praises into worship, we are expressing our love for Him. We are basking in His love for us.

Although Passover and Holy Week have ended, the fact of the New Covenant is ever before us. The Father’s love is so great that He sent Jesus to rescue and redeem us from darkness. He accomplished more than we might ever realize. That is probably why the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter that the eyes of our understanding might be enlightened. [Ephesians 1:18]

It is his Word. It is his finished work. It is ours by faith. So we pray, “Lord, I believe. Help Thou mine unbelief.” [Mark 9:24] Help us to take hold of the blessings of Abraham that rightfully belong to us because of your sacrifice and triumph.

 It is what we ascribe to with grateful hearts and with each Communion.

Ancient of Days

Often it is difficult to picture the Father, although Jesus points to him for our worship [John 4:23-24] This song, however, captures the heavenly, worshipful imagery as inspired by Daniel 7:22.

Ancient of Days – Lyrics

Blessing and Honor,
Glory and Power
Be unto the Ancient of Days
From every nation
All of creation
Be unto the Ancient of Days.

Bridge

Every tongue in heaven and earth
will declare your glory.
Every knee shall bow at your throne
in worship.
You will be exalted oh God,
And your kingdom will not pass away,
Oh Ancient of Days,

Chorus

Your kingdom shall reign over all the earth.
Be unto the Ancient of Days.
For none can compare to your matchless
worth.
Be unto the Ancient of Days.

Above All

Remembering what it was and who it was that made us Christians brings us to a place of gratitude and worship in a deep place of our souls.

Above All – Lyrics

Above all powers
Above all kings
Above all nature
And all created things
Above all wisdom
And all the ways of man
You were here
Before the world began…

Above all kingdoms
Above all thrones
Above all wonders
The world has ever known
Above all wealth
And treasures of the earth
There’s no way to measure
What You’re worth…

Chorus

Crucified
Laid behind the stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like the rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all…

Paul Baloche: “This song means a lot to me because it came from an honest place. I wasn’t ‘trying’ to write a song originally. I sincerely just wanted to worship Him and praise Him for His greatness.”

Lenny LeBlanc: “I think the reason ‘Above All’ has impacted us so powerfully – and many others including Michael W. Smith, is because it’s such a beautiful picture of how a God that is above everything, would become like a rose trampled on the ground, take the fall and think of us….above all.”
