The Destiny of America – Quote from Robert Hunt
What is the destiny of America? What did God have in mind when it was founded, before it got started in 1776? What was God up to? You don’t have to look far. Look at the words of Robert Hunt in 1607, when the first expedition to New England landed at Cape Henry. They planted a cross on the beach. I don’t know if he called it prophecy or not, but he prophesied – the destiny of America. He said, “From these very shores, the Gospel will go forth to not only this new world, but to the entire world.” The purpose and destiny of America is not to be the most powerful nation on earth, though we need to be that to ensure certain things are in place on the planet and that the Gospel gets around the world. It is not to be the richest nation, but we need to be that to get our destiny completed. The destiny of America was to be a beachhead for the Gospel! This guy prophesied it to this nation and to all the nations of the earth from this nation! That’s the destiny of America.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Thank the Lord that the destiny of America was prophesied to the land so very long ago.
Declare that the words of Robert Hunt would come to pass.
Ask the Lord how you can participate in seeing God’s dream for America be fulfilled.
Intercede Matthew 28:19-20 into the Church of America.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, thank you that You did not leave us in the dark as to the reason You established this nation, sending those first Believers to our shores. You spoke through Robert Hunt that You meant for this to be a place that received the Gospel. You wanted to spread the Good News about Jesus from here to the ends of the earth. What a wonderful purpose! I want to participate! Show me what my part looks like. I pray that the Church of America would go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that You have commanded. Amen.
From these very shores, the Gospel will go forth to not only this new world, but to the entire world.
