November 2015 – Rev. Robert Hunt and Virginia Beach

High Level Assignments: Will these dry bones live?

Covenant Root in Virginia – Rev. Robert Hunt

Back in October while planning a Thanksgiving getaway, I (Yvonne) felt a quickening about visiting Virginia Beach.  In 2007, eight years prior, having arrived early in Virginia Beach for a prophetic conference (for which I felt a similar unctioning to attend), I was getting ready to walk the beach with a friend when a pastor stopped to tell us about Rev. Robert Hunt (an Anglican minister who was commissioned under the Virginia Charter to evangelize the land that stretched from South Carolina to Maine and far to the west) and how close we were to the First Landing where Rev. Hunt, after first making the crew stay on board for three days of fasting and praying, planted a wooden cross on those shores and dedicated this nation to the Lord. In his prayers, Rev. Hunt decreed that the gospel would not only be preached in this new land but would also go out from those shores to all of the nations of the world.

Appointed times and boundaries

2007 happened to be the 400-year anniversary of that prophetic act. And it was that weekend that I finally got Acts 17:26-27,   “and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,  that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.” Although my call would touch the nations, that weekend my heart turned towards America, knowing that God’s hand was on my ancestors and on this nation and that He had some purpose for bringing my family here even though we were first enslaved.


Dry Bones

So once again by divine providence, I felt compelled to go to Virginia Beach in the wake of Robert Hunt’s bones having been discovered and now very recently identified  – how profound and what a much needed sign for this nation. I set my heart towards Virginia Beach and towards walking that First Landing Beach,  finding the spot where the cross was planted,  there repenting of our sin of falling away,  and then rededicating the nation to the Lord while asking Him to visit us again. I could almost hear Dutch Sheets’ voice resounding in my ear: it is the synergy of the ages – we need to step into the timeline of the old, old stories.

Confirmation and Isaiah 22:22

I had planned to get re-fired before my departure to Virginia Beach as Dutch was speaking at Glory of Zion that weekend  at the Awakening Our Prophetic Destiny for the Future Conference but the communication lines in the region had been severed and I was unable to receive any live feed.  So I drove the six hours on Sunday and got settled in; it wasn’t until the early hours of Monday morning that I caught his message from Friday night. Dutch spoke of the keys of opening doors no man could shut and closing doors no man could open (Isaiah 22:22) and high level assignments of apostolic and prophetic intercession being given out to the ekklesia – “He’s going to send us on high level assignments.  He’s going to shift nations and governments in this season through apostolic intercession. Not just through apostles, but through apostolic and prophetic intercession. …this move of the Spirit that’s coming and the prayer movement that’s coming is not for the chosen few.  It’s for the available few. There are going to be people sent to palaces that nobody will ever know they’ve been there and it will shift the government over a nation”; and then Chuck prophesied about a shift happening going back to the covenantal roots in Virginia.


Apostolic and Prophetic Decrees

My, my. I knew that I was in the right place at the right time and I knew what I needed to do – make decrees based on Isaiah 22:22 and somehow plant a key when I went to the cross that Friday. So on Friday, I rose early and went through the checkpoint at Fort Story and spent an hour in worship and prayer and completed my assignment.

At the cross
” In this year of Ayin Vav and at the beginnings of the 2nd phase of the Third Great Awakening, I stand at the foot of the cross that is a granite replica of the one planted by Robert Hunt on 29 April 1607, where he dedicated this nation to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the preaching of the gospel to all inhabitants here and also to all nations, and with the prophetic sign of the recent identification of his bones, I stake that original covenant to the current & future destiny of our nation and I rededicate the United States of America to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the purposes of preaching the gospel and advancing His Kingdom (Isaiah 22:22)”

I then went to First Landing Beach and knelt there also and prayed.


Finally, I journeyed to the Jamestown Settlement to walk and pray in the spirit.

There’s power in the bones!

It was not until almost a week later that I heard Dutch’s Saturday message which talked about Robert Hunt’s bones!  Holy Spirit is speaking. I can tell you that something shifted in my spirit while “on assignment” in Virginia Beach – I feel Holy-Spirit-fire in my bones once again! And I feel the resonance of the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah through my core – and there is a  listening, watching and waiting for more assignments.

Excerpt of Saturday morning service –  GZI’s “Awakening Our Prophetic Destiny” Conference

James sings: Some of us thought we had seen the finalization of some things. Some of us saw even death and destruction and we thought it was over. We thought whatever prayers and whatever we had released had been finalized and perhaps the answer that happened was not the answer we were looking for. And that it was over. But just as the man was thrown onto the bones of Elisha and he was raised up from the dead, the Lord says the power of those prayers, the power of your answer is still within me. And although it seems a door had shut, the open door is in me. The answer is in me. And you will see it come around in another way. …The time has come back around. Life is coming round again. There’s power in the bones. There’s still power in the bones. There’s still power in the bones. The time is now. The time is now. The time is now. The time is now. The time is now. There’s power in the prayers, there’s power in the bones, the time is now. There’s power in the prayers, there’s power in the bones, the time is now.
Chuck: This is a word from the Lord. There’s power in the bones – it is where the word of God dwells. … The word of God is quick and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing, dividing soul and spirit going even down into your bone marrow.
Dutch:… As I went back through the history of awakening – what are the verses important to us. What should we agree with? What do you want me to grab? I’ve studied our history. Let me tell you what I think God’s purpose for America is. 1607 they planted a cross and dedicated this land to the glory of God. They found 4 skeletons at Jamestown – one is Robert Hunt’s skeleton. Don’t miss that – in this season, it is a sign to us.

At the scent of water!
Job 14: 7-9

7 “For there is hope for a tree,
When it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
And its shoots will not fail.
8 “Though its roots grow old in the ground
And its stump dies in the dry soil,
9 At the scent of water it will flourish
And put forth sprigs like a plant.
