From - The Mavens' Word of the Day -

The word Godspeed (which can also be written God-speed) is from Middle English, first found in personal names in the thirteenth century.

Godspeed is a nominalization of the phrase God speed (you), understanding which depends on two things: speed in this sense means 'to prosper; succeed', which is now archaic, but which is the original sense of the word; and the verb is subjunctive, expressing a wish, with the entire phrase meaning "may God cause you to succeed."

2 John 9-11 Amplified Version

Anyone who runs on ahead of God and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ, who is not content with what He taught, does not have God; but he who continues to live in the doctrine (teaching) of Christ, does have God, he has both the Father and the Son

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught, do not receive him, do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him into your house or bid him Godspeed or give him encouragement.  

For he who wishes him success, who encourage him wishing him Godspeed is a partaker in his evil doings.

Godspeed, this content appears to mean encouragement.

God speed = God's speed, to have the speed of God on your journey.  So you are wishing someone a good journey, or good luck.
