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. As a Baptist minister, Rev. 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.

Holy Word

The Words Of Encouragement for Today

"... Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
(Joshua 1:9)

The Life Lesson For Today

“Jesus, The Christ, will come again soon. (Revelation 22:7, 22:12, and 22:20) However, soon is a relative term. To Christ, one day is as one thousand years is to us. (2 Peter 3:8) So, from His point of view, He has only been gone from earth for two days. No one knows the hour or the day when He will return. (Matthew 25:13) Therefore we should get ready, and stay ready, so that we will be ready when He comes. (Matthew 24:44 and Luke 12:40) Repent, Christ is coming back, and the kingdom of God is at hand. (Matthew 3:2, Matthew 4:7, and Mark 1:15) “… Come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20) ”
(Rev Wendell Wharton)
