Online Bible Teaching Ministry

Living By The Word of God

This is an online bible teaching ministry which teaches and guides everyone and helps them to live a healthier, happier, and more Christian life style with help from Rev. Wendell Wharton.

Wendell preaches The Word of God, teaches online Bible lessons, publishes books, and provides other religious services to help better the lives of individuals all across the country and around the world. With our Bible word search puzzles, you’ll have fun living by The Word of God. Contact us for more details.

In order to spread The Word of God, Rev Wendell has developed a series of "Bible Based Life Lessons". Each lesson is three paragraphs in length and is part of an online Bible study program. He provides contextual Bible verses and quotes, (Proclamation) which are then simplified and explained. (Explanation)  This is followed by advice on how each of these verses applies to your current, daily life. (Application)  These "Life Lessons" have been referred to as mini-sermons, but they are designed to be daily devotionals that help to explain The Scriptures. He posts one of these Bible Based Life Lessons on his blog daily. His blog may be viewed online through the links provided on this website.

These Bible Based Life Lessons have also been published and are available for purchase through this website. The lessons are grouped together by The Book of The Bible from which they were taken. Rev Wendell has published thirteen of these Bible based books, in addition to a Bible Commentary which includes the Life Lessons from The New Testament Bible Book of Matthew through The Bible Book of Revelation. These books are all available for purchase on the Shop Now page of this website. 

Rev. Wendell also conducts live, face-to-face, Bible study sessions once each week on Wednesday nights. Each one hour long session covers one chapter of a Book of The Bible, and he proceeds chapter by chapter.  The notes and handouts from each of these sessions are available for you to review on the Links page of this website. He is currently teaching from The Bible Book of The Gospel According to John.  For copies of the handouts from this current series in The Bible Book of John, or from the previous Bible study sessions on The Bible Book of Romans or The Bible Book of Hebrews, please contact us and let us know which one you would like.

The Bible Verse For Today

"What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of The Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price; Therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s."                                                                            (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

The Inspirational Thought For Today

"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples." 
(Mother Teresa)

The Motivational Quote For Today

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going."
(Jim Ryun)

The Life Lesson For Today

"What Christ endured on the cross at Calvary paid the price for our sins. In effect, He bought us and redeemed us, and now we belong to Him. We do not belong to ourselves; we belong to The Lord God. Our bodies are the temples of His Holy Spirit, who resides within us. We need to behave in such a way as to honor Him. That includes not only what we do and say to others but also how we treat our bodies and what we put in them. We cannot live in immorality and effectively serve The Lord God. We should live our lives in such a way as to give God glory."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    (Rev Wendell)

Chapter Five of The Bible Book of John



“… Jesus went up to Jerusalem.  Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool … called … Bethesda … In these days lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.  For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water; whosoever then first after the troubling of the water steeped in was made whole …  And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.  When Jesus saw him … He saith unto him, ‘Wilt thou be made whole?’ …  Jesus saith unto him, ‘Rise, take up thy bed and walk.’  And immediately the man was made whole …” 

John 5:1-9 (KJV)
