Janet. when you are diagnosed with HBP you have to make lifestyle changes. First thing. We must change our diet. Cut the salt! Very bad for everyone. Use sea salt or Ms Dash, Morton's low salt etc..Cut the pork, lose weight, learn to relax(very important. Not to get excited and stressed out about small things. This could have been the original problem with your BP. Exercises like walking,light jogging, swimming, aerobics and others. When you do these things the heart palpitations will likely go away. The heart palpitaions begin when the BP goes up. When this happens you can also begin to pray and command that BP to stabilize, in the name of Jesus. Mention the palpitations to your doctor at your next appointment is ok,too. GBU

Reba, the subject of (G-D) took a bad turn. I really didn't mind him using that. All I said was, it brought attention to him for using it, that was all. I didn't say he was a bad person, or not saved, or a pagan, or anything bad.

Concerning special verses, I really don't have one that is most important then another. They are all important. But when God saved me, 20 years ago, one passage I thought was awesome is found in Ezekiel 37. "The dry bones"
It was the beginning of my understanding that God does all the Work in a lost persons life. And that without Him we can do nothing. "Then you shall know that "I" the Lord have spoken it and performed it, says the Lord"
---Mark_V. on 1/3/11

Good grief Janet, did anybody read your question? Reba attempted an appeal to reason but there is some bizarre non-nonsensical discussion involving God and names going on as if the lost world is edified in any way.
Anyway, running is an excellent way to lower blood pressure as with swimming the most excellent of exercises. Check, however with your doctor, on dealing with palpitations. God bless.
---larry on 1/3/11

HEY MARKV & JOHN...Say,you've been there-done that to this discussion & go to the "What's your favorite Bible verse blog" & tell me your favorite verses>>> Come on now, stop beating this dead horse, hasn't it suffered enough? :-}:-} :-} I'm interested to know the verses you lean on everyday.
---Reba on 1/2/11

John, don't you see what you are still doing? Your still defending yourself above defending the name of God

You were attacking ME, not G-d.

Do you say and act the same way when you see a man Praying on his knees?

Does that offend you as well? Do you ASSUME(JUDGE) as you do with me that the reason they are on their knees is to atract attention.


If someone ate Kosher (I do not). I would NOT exclude him from my table. As the Lord, Peter, and Saul have taught us.


But you seem to have fogotten the full meaning of that lesson.
---John on 1/2/11

John, don't you see what you are still doing? Your still defending yourself above defending the name of God. I really don't care what you use, the only reason I answered was because using the name of God the way you do, has no purpose for those who read what you write. It is only for your pleasure. And what it does it brings questions from others as to why you use God's name the way you do. The first question is why do you remove the "o" from the name of God? And when you answer you defend yourself and not the name of God. You get upset that we even ask. You have a right to write his name anyway you want, but don't get angry when people ask why.
---Mark_V. on 1/2/11

Thanks Reba!

G-d bless you on your journey and thanks for praying for me as well.

It looks like you're well on your way! :)
---John on 1/1/11

john - You are grammarly incorrect in using "-" to denote God as any good spell checker would quickly point that out.

While the old Hebrew scholars were very careful in using the name of God, you will not find anyone in the early church either of those who penned the Bible or those of the early writers, had such religious scruples.

I view it simply as a means of drawing attention to yourself. As to eating at my table, I can do nothing but honor those who are in Christ even if they are weak in the faith.

Romans 14:1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
---leej on 1/1/11

John, I know what you're talking about. As well as when writing the first translation of the Bible into English the writers would change to a new pen when writing one of the names of God.Then continue with the original pen after writing His name. I went to a Christian School & we did a small study of those things. I'm sure not as much as you have, but I am some-what familiar with what you're talking about.
---Reba on 1/1/11

//YOU and Leej are committing sin by making judgement and not eating at my table because my food is unclean to you(not G-d).

You might consider inviting Francis and Jerry to your table and serve a good pork roast.

But we can thank you John, as we all need to see some humor on this forum every once in a while.
---leej on 1/1/11

Reba, You need to study.

The words G-d L-rd YHWH etc. are NOT my invention, nor is it uncommon. In fact it is the only way Jews spell His name. Check out Judism on google. It is OT particular to me. It is the spelling use orginally and has been the Mosiac Tradition for 1000s of years. It has also been adopted by many Christians (Optional). Simlar to kneeling or standing, or laying down (or whatever)when prayer.

Any resemblance to some modern day cuss(I never heard of this) is purely
coincedently. It is not unique. It has been around longer than the full spelling has.

I am reply to you because I think you did not know this.
---John on 12/31/10

John, Remember what I said in the,"How to celebrate Christmas" blog? When someone thinks something is wrong & you don't agree with them, the best thing to do is pray that God will open their eyes & show them if He's offended by their actions. Well John, I'm going to do just that. I'll pray for you like I asked you to pray for me. This is the last you'll hear from me on this subject. It's not my place to change you anyway. May God,our Father be with all His children as we strive to please Him in all we do.
---Reba on 12/31/10

Forgive us Janet, I do believe we've completely gotten away from your question for this blog of how to control high blood pressure & severe palpitations. I hope you can still find the help you're looking for.
---Reba on 12/31/10

God is a title, not a name. Whenever LORD appears in capital letters throughout scripture, it's a replacement for the original writing of what many believe is His holy name, Yahweh. If this doesn't offend readers, why does an alternate spelling of a "title" cause dissension?

Some get offended at calling a parent "father". They believe this title is only for our heavenly Father (as scripture states, but I don't think means we cannot call a parent "father"). Some have been offended by my screenname (and I'm in no way comparing its value to the Father's title). They believe it means I'm "always right", instead of "always online". We will frequently be offended when we make assumptions.
---AlwaysOn on 12/31/10

To ME you are...Bringing attention to yourself

I do NOT do this to get attention from others. I get attention from other because I do this.

The way I pray, eat or worship G-d is no ones business but my own,. And to bring this to Judges(You/Leej) is very disgusting. I do not ever tell or imply this is a better or holier. It is NOT Heresy.

YOU and Leej are committing sin by making judgement and not eating at my table because my food is unclean to you(not G-d). You do remember Paul confronting Peter.

Matt: 15:11
"What goes into a man's mouth does not make him 'unclean,' but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him 'unclean.'"
---John on 12/31/10

Thanks Donna66,

Here's what I first posted on this issue.

"A devotion of my own, which I do NOT enforce on others."

I never ever posted otherwise. Its just what I do. Nothing less, nothing more.

John & Donna66, I DON"T have a problem with someone respecting my Heavenly Father, I DO have a problem with the 2 letters of His name that John's chosen to use together. You're turning His Holy Name into the worlds cuss word. If you truly honour His name as much as you claim then you should really fear what you are doing because it's a form of taking His name in vain. I'm only suggesting that you chose different letters to put together. Or use something that He told people in the Bible to call Him. Like,"I AM" or He calls Himself"A Father" to believers, so why couldn't you do that? Why do you insist on using those 2 letters together as a referral to your Creator?
---Reba on 12/31/10

John, what you said prompted me to answer you again.
You said:
"Sorry but that is my personal journey. But to have people judge, critize, laugh, and point fingers at me for it, is very digusting and sinful in itself"
It is not sinful are disgusting to bring this point to your attention. Your statement indicates you are more concern about what is said to you, then what is said of God. If what you are doing as a Christian effects others, your primary goal should be to correct what you are saying about God. It is offensive to many for you to use those words when no where in Scripture do we see (G-d) written that way. To me you are doing it on purpose to be different then others. Bringing attention to yourself and not God.
---Mark_V. on 12/30/10

Thanks Reba,

But if you read my posts, one of them explains the orgin of this writing.

It is derived from the Judism (Mosiac). The spelling of G-d or the speaking of the Tetragammon are forbidden. The Orthodox Jews and many Christians would never spell His name out, nor would they pronounce the Tetragammon. This could be optional for Christians, but I decided to respect it.
---John on 12/30/10

Isn't this a case of straining at a gnat? (though you may swallow a camel).
It's not an insult, Reba. Ortodox Jews have followed this practice for ages. I can't see that it makes any difference. I don't know why John would choose to use this particular method of referring to God, but it doesn't bother me if he does.
(As long as he doesn't believe I'M somehow less of a Christian for not doing likewise!)

John, I've commented on your use of the 2 letters of God's name before. Remember? I said G-d is what unsaved, yet polite, people use for profanity. You hear it every day! If you are just not spelling His whole name out of respect, you've chosen the most disrespectful way of doing it!!! Why not just say Go* or my Heavenly Father? Yet you've chosen to use the same profane way as the world to use His name. To me, this is highly offensive!! I have to question what your true motives for continuing this really is.
---Reba on 12/29/10

Peter and John replied,....
Which is right in Gods eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges!
---John on 12/24/10

Frankly John, it (g-d) is a distraction from anything else you would post, even if you say it is a means of showing reverence, etc.
---leej on 12/22/10

John, in no way do I think your use of G-d is sinful. It does draw attention and brings the question, why do you? You can spell His name anyway you want so long as we know who you are talking about. Envy or pride you ask? No, none of the above. Envy of what? That you use G-d and I do not? Nonsense, Pride you ask? Not at all. Pride of what? That I don't use the same thing as you do? that is also nonsense. You do great answering questions, I have no problem with any of it either. Don't get defensive. You take things personal. It was just unusual to see someone use what you do. Not common from anyone since I have been on line. Are you pastor Jim?
---Mark_V. on 12/22/10

I do not use G-d to appear "Holier than Thou" or to atract attention.
I attract attention (or offend) some because I use this spelling.

If we were talking you would not have noticed.

Sorry but that is my personal journey. But to have people judge, critize, laugh, and point fingers at me for it, is very digusting and sinful in itself.

Is it a sin what I do?

Do I then seek the approval of sinful men, and change it to prevent You, Leej and others from sinning further .

Is it envy you are expressing? Is it Pride?

So I continue on my PRIVATE journey in seeking the aprroval of G-d who judges us all!
---John on 12/22/10

Leej, I agree with your answers. I too believe when someone uses the words G-d, is trying to express something to everyone that makes him different then the others. But I too find nothing wrong with anyone writing God's name that way. I have seen John write God's name that way and it does not bother me because, first, I see nothing wrong with it, and second, I pay attention more on what he writes concerning Scripture. I agree on most of the things he has to say. He does a good job just as you do.

Sorry John, but I have not changed my view that some Christians are ridiculous in what they practice and believe.

However, I am often content to leave one with their religious scruples. If they wish to genuflect and dance around an altar or spell God as G-d, they may do so. I do believe such issues are not worth getting into a scrap over.

No but I would possibly call someone "superstitiuos" who spell God as g-d.

Perhaps this is a way you use to get attention to yourself much like the man who stuck a feather in his hat, danced around while sanging yankee doodle!
---leej on 12/20/10

And such is often the attitude of those pastors who think they are so annointed of God that they have the right to denigrate other Christians that simply will not fit into their little boxes.

In most dictionaries the word arrogant truly fits them.
---leej on 12/20/10


Your attempt to divert this subject won't work.

You need to read scripture concerning your heretical beliefs. I have posted it on all the Christmas posts and spoke from scripture and history.

Different subject!


Using G-d is my personal reverence as well as many other Christians and Orthodox Jews.

Would you then call "superstitious" a man who goes on his knees to pray? Would you then condemn a man who stands and pray with his hands up high.

Do you then condemn the cripple who could do neither?

Would you sit and eat on the same table as these?

Or have you no spirit of The Christian G-d in you???
---John on 12/20/10

\\My personal devotion and reverence to G-d is an offense to You. A devotion of my own, which I do NOT enforce on others.\\

So I am NOT invited to your table because my food is unclean to you.

My personal devotion and reverence to G-d is an offense to You. A devotion of my own, which I do NOT enforce on others.

My hands are Washed before G-d, but not before you.

As slaves, we all seek favorable Judgement before G-d our master, the master sees how you have Judged other slaves.(Matt18:23-35) SO... "Christian" how do you seek your Judgement after you treat another slave so.

Yes leej. Just more proof why we shouldnt follow the teachings of men outside of the word of God.

They can fall away from the truth as well and lead many astray. And as they typically do they use the fear of "going against God" if you dont adhere to the doctrine they preach.

Men who are more concerned about doctrine than they are showing the light of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world have their heart in the wrong place.
---JackB on 12/20/10

Another story, this time about success, failure and back to success. Elderly woman is we'll forward in a wheelchair in the church. After prayer woman stands up and pushed her wheelchair back to her pew. Two weeks later woman is back in wheelchair. Three months later healing evangelist comes to this church. Again woman gets up out of chair and remains out of wheelchair to this day. This happened about eight years ago
---mima on 12/20/10

Absolutely correct leej! The "O" has been replaced by my heart. Sorry if it offends you, but as the Lord said. "I DO NOT SEEK THE APPROVAL OF MEN!"

The same will be true with YHWH-The Tetragammon.

It does not: or ever had vowels until some arrogant, blastphemous elitist Christian decided upon himself to add vowels so he can speak it. Obviously he thought that he was a higher authority than G-d.

So he placed his throne above the almighty. Hmmm? Who else decided to do that... Oh yes SATAN!

And ignornant "Christians" follow like Lemmings falling off the cliff to hell!

John//G-d Bless you my friend!

Is there something wrong with the 'o' letter on your keyboard?

Or is this simply one of those silly superstitious things that we cannot mention God?

In ancient times, the name of Yahweh was not to be mentioned as they used the letter YHWH- the transliteration of the four letters Tetragrammaton representing the name of God in the Bible.

This transliteration was only ever pronounced by the high priest in the Temple.
---leej on 12/19/10

James 5:14-15 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well, the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.

The church today does not obey their Lord when it comes to this verse. Perhaps they have run out of oil or simply has concluded that God no longer heals the sick.
---leej on 12/19/10

Exactly MarkV.

It almost seems like man doesn't learn, You see Christians acting just like the Israelites of the Exodus.

Basically the attitude is "What's in it for ME" When it should be in reverse "Whats in it for HIM."

It is then true Godly healing and blessings occur. Both in our Earthly Lives and Heavenly lives.

You can see it in many of the posts here.

You also see the Godly people who although they suffer greatly they continue in their service to G-d unhampered and accept what G-d has placed on their table.
Which why I get inspired reading your posts even during these hard times in your life.

G-d Bless you my friend!

John, very good points. The fact is that Jesus did not always healed everyone. He did heal while here, and many today compare themselves to Christ because He and the Apostles healed, but Jesus main point was to heal us from inside. Sure, God still heals today, but, it will not be for anyone to boast. As I see done here.
Finally, Christ atonement on the Cross does extend to physical healing. One day, "There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away" Rev. 21:4. However Paul points out, "We hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently" Romans 8:25. So we will suffer, get sick and die.

I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijahs time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land. Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon. And there were many in Israel with leprosy in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed only Naaman the Syrian.

That "church" should be converted to a hospital since they have 100% cure rate.

Know this my friend!

That The Lord DID NOT come to heal the flesh. As we just die again.

The miracles of Christ/Disciples were to authenticate their authority/doctrines.


Christ is NOT in the healing business, or ANY other self serving doctrine of men.

He cares ONLY about the Glory of the Father and to teach this Gospel.

BUT... When a church makes Healing etc the focus. Then that church is preaching occult. Satan will heal your flesh here on earth. His Antichrist will be performing amazing Miracles as well. DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THIS BLASPHEMY!

The girl came back to service on Sunday to say that no tumor was found at her scheduled operation on Friday. Hence no operation!!! What you think?

Mima -- I wouldn't expect you to investigate blood pressure readings before and after. But when you say "I call it a miracle...what do you say?"... I'm telling you.

I know God can heal miraculously. But if the woman feels she's cured, I would probably tell her to check with her doctor...if he sees that she is truly healed she can tell him how it came about and it will be a witness to him too! But she won't be going off her medication if she actually still needs it.

Not that I haven't faith, but my training is in health care. I'm more concerned with that than "boosting" God's reputation. And I know how suggestible we all can be. When God performs a miracle healing, it usually astonishes even the doctors.

Mima --- Could be a miracle, but to verify it you would have to know how often she took her blood pressure in what period of time afterward. As someone has said, blood pressure may vary widely.

JackB-- It could be caused by the vagus nerve. Usually palpitations are harmless, but they are frightening. And anxiety can also cause can be a vicious cycle. You should get individualized advice from your doctor. He will give you an EKG to see what your heart is actually doing when you have "palpitations". If you have an arrhythmia, not just a periodically rapid heart beat,you probably need medication. Please check it out!

Later I found out the woman's blood-pressure went down that afternoon has been down ever since. What do you say?

What do you say? While it is true that God does answer prayer there are many other reasons why her blood pressure may have went down.

Having had extremely high blood pressure for the past 20 years, I have found there are times it will be very high or even low. If I fast and go without food for any long period of time,the blood pressure is likely to go down considerably.

On the other hand, stress of any sort could drive it back up.

And blood pressure medicine often works differently at different times, depending up what foods you may have eaten or other factors.

Ive had problem with high heart rate and palpitations for years now. Every doctors visit ends up the same: "No problems".

Recently I discovered a forum where everyone was having the same symptoms. Rapid heart beat after eating, and heart palpitations. Some of which make you so dizzy you feel youre about to pass out.

Apparently gas can become so severe in the stomach or intestines that it puts pressure on the Vagus nerve (which regulates the heart beat) causing all kinds of arrythmias.

Doctors claim these arrythmias are harmless but they sure dont feel like it.

The palpitations can be caused by any number of things NOT related to hypertension, including tuberculosis and anxiety attacks.

Sounds like you need to get to the doctor.

It really takes a medical doctor to tell you how to control your blood pressure. There some basic facts that need to be considered for a long term control of blood pressure that doesn't require medication, 1. Control stress, 2. Control weight and 3. Control exercises. (For example, walking just 2 miles a day can help lower blood pressure.) But, all of the above suggestions must be done with a doctor's approval. Just remember, these are long term actions to lower BP. They only work if a person is consistant in putting them into action.

It really depends upon what the cause of high pressure is.

Some can control it by reducing their weight. They are simply too fat.

Some can adjust their lifestyle so as to eliminate or reduce stress.

Others require medication.

As for my hypertension, it is caused by genetics, having been in my father for years.

I take 5 different kinds of medication to control my high blood pressure.
