A Voice of Hope to Those Without Hope

16 May 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.

Speak words that lift up, encourage, and are filled with faith. Be intentional and use words that breathe life into every situation.

Proverbs 18:21

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue....."

Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro.

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.

Shining more brilliant than ever, your lamp filled with oil, shining bright as day. 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 earnestly desire that place that was lost that day when Adam fell from glory, counting it more precious than all the silver and gold. Not turning to the side, nor to the left nor the right, nor to drawback, nor to be distracted but like a good and faithful soldier called into service to not be caught up in the affairs of this world, and the affairs of everyday life. To completely yield your life and to completely obey the One who called you into His service. Standing fully dressed, as we are clothed with Christ. Standing fully equipped against the darkness that works to snuff out our light. We ought to remain holy unto God in this evil and perverse generation, keeping ourselves separated unto God. 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, that they are like a bad taste in His mouth, and He will vomit them out. We ought to keep our vessels pure, refined as gold, vessels of honor ready for the Masters’ use.

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.

Breakdown in Relationship with Others

You can be separated from others through broken relationships, long-term anger, hatred, rage, resent­ment, bitterness, un-forgiveness, jealousy, competition, performance, being driven to achieve, and lack of nurtur­ing.

When you have a breakdown in a relationship with somebody, you can deny it all you want, but it is eat­ing at you. This bitterness does not only affect you and that specific person where it came in, but it affects your relationship with everybody else. This is because you are projecting all that fear of rejection and disappointment into everybody you encounter. When bitterness eats at you in your thoughts, you end up with cancer cells that eat away at your body. Can you see how your thought life is literally translated into a physical reaction? Proverbs 23 v 7 says that as a man thinks in his heart, so does he become.

Gossip is a form of strife according to the Bible and when you allow strife in your life – you open the door to every evil work. Strife includes bickering, arguing, fighting, heated disagreements, and angry undercurrents.

James 3 v 16: “For where there is envying and strife, there is confusion and every evil work.”

In Isaiah chapter 58, the Israelites were going through all the motions of externally praising God. They were going to church, singing church songs, fasting, and outwardly seeking God, but they were destroying each other through strife. God wasn’t interested in their superficial praise, prayers, and fasting and neither did He heal them. If you want to enjoy a long life of good health, you have got to keep the strife out of your life and that includes your tongue!

1 Peter 3 v 10, “For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days [good – whether apparent or not] keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from the guild (treachery, deceit).”

Ephesians 4 v 26: “When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down.”

Do you understand the importance of the above verse, when it comes to health and sickness? God is saying that if you don’t deal with that issue by releas­ing and forgiving, you are going to have disease beginning in your body by morning.

1 John 4 v 20: “If anyone says, I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother [in Christ], he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen cannot love God, whom he has not seen.”

According to 1 John 4, when we become separated from each other, we become separated from God too. We cannot have fellowship with God and not have fellowship with our brother. We cannot say that we love God while we have hatred, anger, rage, resentment, bitterness, un-forgiveness, and jealousy towards our brother.
