THE MAYFLOWER COMPACT, NOV. 11TH, 1620


On this day, 400 years ago on Nov 11th, 1620, over 100 men, women, and children were aboard the ship the Mayflower, getting ready to disembark the vessel at their new homeland, which would be called Plymouth (Massachusetts).


41 of those men (Pilgrims) signed what was called The Mayflower Compact, as a legal binding agreement between them, and declaring what their intentions were in the new land.


In 1802, John Quincy Adams described the agreement as “the only instance in human history of that positive, original, social compact”, and it is popularly believed to have influenced the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.


We are in another moment just as historical and, some would say, just as pivotal, in our nation today. I will continue to share about the Kairos moment in history that I believe we are in as a Nation, as the days go on. Today I want to simply share this. Read it, let it sink in, the consider the significance of this day...


Words of the Mayflower Compact:


"In the name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God of Great Britain, France, and Ireland King, Defender of the Faith, etc.

Having undertaken for the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith and Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the First Colony in the Northern Parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and one of another, Covenant and Combine ourselves together in a Civil Body Politic, for our better ordering and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute and frame such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness whereof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cape Cod, the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France and Ireland the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Domini 1620."

She is a Prophetic Minister who heard the Lord's call from a very young age. Amanda is a heralding voice of truth, holiness, and purity within the prophetic, and calls others to stand in a place of no compromise in their callings.

Along with her calling as a Prophetess, Amanda also flows in a powerful worship and healing anointing, and is a gifted teacher and writer as well. Although she loves all aspects of the ministry that God has called her to, her personal passion is to see reformation come to the Body of Christ and the current prophetic movement. She also longs to see those in the Body of Christ reach their destinies - to see God's people break free from their strongholds and bondages, to walk in complete wholeness and freedom in Christ. She is honored and excited to serve the Lord in many capacities in the Kingdom, seeing lives transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit! 

 

Over a 10 year period, Amanda received overall training in biblical studies, with extensive training in prophecy, spiritual warfare, Hebraic roots, healing, and supernatural ministry, at various ministry schools. In addition, she also traveled and served under several national and international ministries during that time. She is constantly engaging in more study and understanding in the revelations of the Lord, and is actively involved in continuing education.
