A Voice to Those Without Hope.

23 March 2022

I can no better explain what Voice of Hope represents than through the voice of Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro. "Voice of Hope is committed and devoted to being an avenue that will help others grow spiritually, emotionally, and in knowledge."


Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro brings wonderful insights and wisdom. Nothing less than precious pearls from her pen.


Waiting on God is very different than waiting on our agenda. God honors His agenda, not ours. Fear imitates wait.

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro.

Founder and President

Hosea 8:1 “Set the trumpet to your lips! [The enemy] comes as a [great] vulture against the house of the Lord, because they have broken my covenant and transgressed against my law.”

The message is a call to each one that will heed the call to prepare as soldiers would prepare for war. To put on the full armor of light as to stand fully equipped against the dominion of darkness in these last days. The mandate is to equip and make ready a people for the soon return of their King.


Isaiah 60:1-3

1. ARISE, SHINE, for thy LIGHT comes, and the GLORY of the Lord rises upon thee,

2. For, behold, the DARKNESS shall cover the earth, and GROSS DARKNESS THE PEOPLE: but THE LORD SHALL RISE UPON THEE.


Now, is the hour to arise. See the truth and awake to reality, be not deceived, time is not on our side, the hour is very late. We are in the midnight hour. Make up your mind, now more than ever, to strife, and to do all to make your election sure. Now is the hour of the fulness of all things. Now is the hour that the fulness of Christ will be revealed in us. Therefore, we must choose to cast far from us every work of darkness and every weight and sin that so easily ensnares. We must throw off from us all these sins and weights that distract and are holding us back, so that we will be able to run our race set before us while looking for, and watching for, and waiting for, the glory of God to appear and in the running, in the looking, in the watching, in the waiting we will suddenly rise on eagles’ wings and fly. We must come out and be separated from the influence and the sin, the perversion and the lawlessness, the love for the world and all it has to offer, the lack of fear of a Holy God, all these things are evident and ever-increasing in the world. We deceive ourselves if we believe we can sit at the table of God and the table of the devil at the same time. We are even more deceived when we believe Jesus did everything for us and we have no part to play in making our election sure. We are even more deceived when we believe the glory of God will come to those who take the things of

God in a stride. I tell you the kingdom of God within you sufferers’ violence daily through your greatest adversary and he walks around like a roaring lion looking for those who are playing around in the dark, those unaware of the urgency of the times, allowing him to devour them. We are in danger when we are sleeping and we are not sober when we are not watching to perceive the next move of the spirit and we are not praying in the Spirit building ourselves up in our most holy faith as we see the day draw near. We have to become violent, and take hold of the kingdom of God within us and use force if we have to, but we must allow no one and nothing to take our crown.


I am coming soon hold unto what you have so that no one takes your crown.

Now is the hour to shine. Make up your mind to take up the full armor of light and to walk steadfastly as a way of life in the light of His holy presence, to desire that place and count it more precious than any treasure, not turning to the side, nor to the left nor the right, nor to drawback. To be in no way distracted but like a good and faithful soldier called into service to be equipped and ready, not caught up in the affairs of this world and the affairs of everyday life. To completely yield our life and to completely obey the One who called us into His service. Now is the hour to choose which side you will be on, the side of light or the side of darkness. It cannot be both, it is the one or the other. Scripture clearly states Jesus Himself despises the lukewarm so much so that they are like a bad taste in His mouth and He will vomit them out.

Romans 13:11-14

11. And that KNOWING THE TIME, that is now IT IS HIGH TIME TO AWAKE OUT OF SLEEP: for now, is our salvation nearer than when we first believed.

12. The night is far spent the day is at hand: LET US THEREFORE CAST OF THE WORKS OF DARKNESS,


13. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting (wild parties) and drunkenness, not in

chambering (sexual promiscuity) and wantonness (extreme indulgence in sensual pleasures),

not in strife and envying


Now is the hour to BE A LIGHT. You can only be light after you have heeded to the call to ARISE and to SHINE for only then will you be made a vessel holy and set apart, undefiled, found worthy to carry the glorious power of God, the very light of the presence of God, the anointing of the Holy Spirit. God will only entrust His glorious power to those who are worthy of His trust! Only the fulness of Christ revealed in a person's life will bring about the omnipotent, that is, the unlimited power of God revealed!!!!!!!

ARISE!!! Wake up out of sleep. SHINE!!! Cast off all the work of darkness and put on the full armor of light so that you can shine as a light in the darkness. BE GLORIOUS!!! Be fully clothed with the Lord Jesus Christ and walk in the omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit.

Be not deceived. I tell you the truth, we are entering the hour of the fulness of everything. We are entering the hour of crisis where everything that can be shaken will be shaken. We are entering the hour of the purifying fire of the Holy Spirit, the hour where the Lord Himself will in a final attempt rebuke and chastise those He loves to do them good in the end. We are entering the hour where darkness will increase upon the earth and the people but at the same time will the brilliant light of God’s presence and His grace, His divine power, His divine ability, His divine provision increase upon the earth and the people, but it will only come to those who are asking for it, who are seeking after it, and who are looking for it. The latter rains of the Spirit of God are available to all flesh but He will only come to those who chose to prepare, those who allowed the blood of Jesus to cleanse them but most importantly allowed the Holy Spirit to keep them clean, those who allowed Christ to clothe them with a new garment but most importantly allowed the Holy Spirit to keep them clothed so that they would be made worthy, those who took hold of grace, who allowed grace and trusted in grace to do what it had been sent to do; to take them from glory to glory and bring them into their full deliverance. It will only come to the remnant who will be found standing in the place of grace through faith!!!! Jesus is coming to purge His body, He is coming to clean house in the same manner as we read in the scriptures, He went into His Father’s house with a whip, He is coming to His Father’s house once again with a whip to clean house, for the scriptures clearly states that the zeal for His Father’s house eats Him up, it consumes Him, it burns like a raging fire within. Do not allow anything in your life, or in your church, or in your ministry to hinder the glory of God that is coming. Do not allow anything to hinder the Holy Spirit that will be poured out. Remove everything that hinders for I tell you the glory of God is coming! The glory will certainly come to the remnant!

RENEWED (body, soul & spirit)

Rika spent 22 years climbing the Corporate ladder, just to realize the ladder was against the wrong building.

She entered the fitness industry in 2007 and had 3 successful Curves franchises where she was personally involved in coaching and counseling members with further studies in Nutrition at Baylor University, Texas, and the Cleveland Heart Clinic. “There is no greater reward than making a difference in people’s lives. “

When her husband was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer in 2015, it impacted their lifestyle dramatically, unfortunately, it was too late for Bruce.

Through this experience, the Lord birthed a desire to educate, counsel, and facilitate innovative mental, physical and spiritual health solutions through an in-depth focus on individual holistic wellbeing.

“I thank the Lord for the vision and am blessed to be able to provide knowledge of renewal in mind, body, and spirit to complete health and healing."

Ps 138 says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We have a responsibility to care for our bodies and not abuse them for we are the temple of God.


We are made in the image of God. God is triune; Father, Son & Holy Spirit, so are we 3 in one; body, soul & spirit.

Gen 1:26 “ Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness”

Gen 1: 27 “So God created man in His image, in the image of God He created him; male & female He created them.

Through fear, we no longer live a life of victory and fruitfulness, but we live a life filled with sickness and barrenness. When our minds are filled with worry, anxiety, and fear it affects our bodies and we wonder why we are sick and suffer from chronic diseases.

The Bible is clear on this; Proverbs 17:22 “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”

What are dried-up bones? Sickness & disease, which is not from God but the enemy, and we get so caught up in negativity. If we look at the world around us, listen to the news and it becomes a slippery spiral that pulls us down into the depths of despair.

Jesus said in John 10 vs 10:” The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. I came that you may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)”

We need to get rid of the toxic mindset by renewing our minds, which in turn will have an impact on our whole being:

Rom 12: 2 “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (New Living Translation)

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
