My Vision of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah
By Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro
Founder and President of Thread of Hope
“Then one of the elders said to me,
'Do not weep!
See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David,
Today, I was talking to the Vice President at Thread of Hope, Pastor Eddie Masih. I was sharing with him a vision that God gave me last week. I saw the same thing for almost a week. Then I came upon this verse. Suddenly, God revealed my vision. I’m sharing it with you.
Here’s my open vision.
I saw a lion, and he was running in slow motion. There was no background, just the lion running. This lion was not on solid ground. He was above me. I assume he was in the air. The lion was coming with full force. His mane was gently blowing in the wind. He was steady, just forging ahead. He was in full control and seemed like he knew what was going to happen.
It’s like I could sense his confidence that he was going to devour and conquer. He was determined, not scared, not intimidated. Keeping his running pace the same. I was overtaken by his face. He had an intense look. The expression on the face of the lion was secure, but he was angry. The pace of his running intrigued me. I had never seen a lion do what was done in my vision.
Then, I knew who this lion was. This was Jesus as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. I was now in complete shock, overtaken by emotion. I realized He was coming to fight, conquer, and deliver.
All of a sudden, I heard what was about to happen. Even though the lion didn’t roar, that I could see or hear at that moment, I saw His face and knew what the roar was going to sound like. In other words, I saw a lion who wasn’t roaring but will roar when He gets to His destination. The expression on this lion’s face getting ready to roar was frightening. I saw the anger and the shaking of His head from left to half way up, to the right, and then straight up bent backwards a little. Then I heard the roar. This was so loud that everything stopped. Then there was silence. I was made to understand that this was a roar of victory for the church.
Pastor Eddie immediately had an interpretation. He said, “You saw Jesus, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Just like a lion watching its prey. The prey doesn’t realize it’s being watched. The lion comes without the prey realizing that he’s coming, but when he finally arrives, it’s over for the prey. He comes to overcome, devour, conquer, and win.”
It finally made sense to me. God has been steady and patient with all the evil we have witnessed for an entire year. God was there watching the whole time. The remnant have remained steadfast, faithful, and strong. Our faith never wavered. Our hope was never lost, our faith soared, and we repented from our wicked ways. We fought a good fight and we showcased in whom we put our trust and hope in. We stood our ground, even while being mocked and made fun of. We endured under the worst of situations.
God showed me through the vision that He is here with His children. He wasn’t sitting down somewhere. He has been coming all along, running, but timely. This is why he chose to show me the slow motion.
He was actually running, I just was seeing Him in show motion. We might have had to wait for Him to come, but He wasn’t taking His time. He was aggressively running to deliver and save us.
Church, please, I’m begging you. It’s time that you stand on the side of righteousness and holiness. Stand with the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t weep, don’t be scared. In the verse above it describes Him as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. It further says “Has triumphed.” It’s past tense, meaning it’s finished. He conquered. He is the winner. He won on our behalf. He successfully ended a terrible conflict. We are victorious. We have been declared the winners. We have been defended and protected by Him.
Glory to GOD! Alleluia!
