There is a big difference in walking in the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT in this realm and the GLORY OF GOD realm.
Two different realms. Jesus did not stop WITH operating in the power of the Holy Spirit and doing miracles, healing people, and casting out devils.
Although these were great works he did, (and we shall do these also AND GREATER THAN THESE) no he did not stop there he knew there was a higher/ greater realm and went on to the greater glory!
He could have called for legions of angels to save him from that hour but, rather he chose to willingly surrender to this part of the process and lay it all down through the crucifixion.
No man took His life he willingly surrendered to this part of the process. He said no man takes My Life from me I lay it down willfully that I might take it up again this commandment I learned of My Father.
He went on further to suffer to crucify the flesh so he could to enter into His Glory!
No — you cannot skip this part and expect to enter into The Glory. You indeed will drink of this cup and be baptized with His Baptism. The Bible says, even as Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise.

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body,” Romans 8:18-23

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” 1 Corinthians 15:20-26.
“Yea, though I WALK THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” Psalm 23:4-5.
