Blood Pressure Drops Miraculously
Hello, my name is Bernd and I became a Christian in 1996, in Berlin. I would like to tell you about how the Lord healed me from a disease I had suffered from for many years – and actually lead me to salvation through this!
I had very high blood pressure - 220/180 – although I was taking medication all the time. Such medication is actually very dangerous as it weakens the whole vascular system, especially the heart valves. It also increases the risk of heart attacks, especially as one grows older.
I was working as a taxi driver back then, when one of my colleagues, Roman, whom I had known for several years, suddenly started preaching to me from the Bible. I had never heard anything from the Bible before, and I was quite surprised – I couldn't imagine how I would be able to believe in someone I wasn’t able to see.
Roman told me that God would take 100 steps towards me if I would go only one towards him.
Roman told me that God would take 100 steps towards me if I would go only one towards him. I asked him, "How shall I do that?" He told me to simply grab a Bible, study it, and most importantly do what is written in it – then God would answer.
Well, I knew that I had an old Bible somewhere in the basement – and after some digging I eventually found it.
One scripture which really hit me was EXODUS 15:26
"If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statues, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee".
When I read this, a thought immediately came into my mind: “God, if this is true, then heal me of my high blood pressure!” Somehow, I 'knew' that it would happen and so I simply stopped taking the medication. Well, not long after that my blood pressure dropped significantly! After my salvation it stayed at a normal level – 130/70 – and has remained so to this day.
I really praise the LORD for this miracle – the doctor still can't believe it…!
With love in Christ, Bernd
