Note：This is the 8th book of the 9-book “End Time Series” we have published since 2011. The free download page for the Chinese second edition is here: 8.1459919.com. The Kindle Chinese version (second edition) is here：amazon.com/dp/B00M9TZBC2.
When the so-called End of the World date December 21, 2012 according to the Mayan Calendar passed us peacefully, it gives some people quite a room for thinking and rethinking.
What we must know is, the “Last Days” in the Bible are plural, encompassing the entire time period between the first coming and the second coming of Jesus. For this reason, the Bible also refers to this time period as the “End Age.” However, the end point of this end age concerns with everyone living in the world and is therefore special and different from the normal death that is roughly predictable for each person. In other words, if human beings in Noah’s time had already experienced this end point collectively as a family, what is facing us as a whole will be more unusual. The reason is that we are living at a time when the physical production is greater than ever before, the global resource is decreasing at an alarming speed, nuclear weapons have accumulated to such a level as enough to destroy the earth more than ten times, and many different human religious opinions have flood the human mind to an unprecedented level. No matter how you look at it, what we are to face in the near future is a path that none has ever attempted to walk on in depth and width.
After we published Taichuan Tongs’ six-book “End Time Series” by the Christmas of the year 2011, we met a special reader who showed such a great interest in the six books that he started to share his feedback and inspired reflections and research for many issues on one of our websites at 1459919.NET using the pen name Lot Tertius.
Maybe our six books had renewed his understandings of the Bible, he contacted us and expressed the need to simplify all six books into one book that is meant for people who have never read the Bible to understand.
To our surprise, he finished the simplified version of our original six books in only three months!
After reading his manuscript, we found that indeed his understanding is deep yet made simple for most people to grasp. If the original six books were written for the Bible preachers, then this book “How to Read the Bible at the End Time” is indeed for the beginners.
We believe that this book will help all who are seeking to know the true meaning of life to perceive the Good News that Bible talks about and will be finalized by the resurrection that Jesus brings with Him when He comes the second time.

The six-book series published by TheoLogos Publications indeed helps me a lot. After digesting the full content of these books for a while, I feel strongly about the value of these books. I believe that without the direct help of the Holy Spirit, no matter how hard one tries, no one could discover the mysteries of the Bible that these six books have talked about.
In particular, the entire six books are assembled based on the tri-unity of the Bible – integrity, invariancy and inerrancy of the Old and New Testaments in their original languages — are therefore agreeing with each other without any conflict. As a result, many hard Bible questions have one by one found answers that are clear, convincing and to the point.
However, because the original series took the format of being simple and touching the point, it is a bit hard to grasp the point for people who are not deeply equipped with the knowledge of the Bible, no matter how good these books are.
To make up this shortcoming, I wrote this book to simplify all major contents in the six-book series using easy-to-understand terms rather than the traditional Bible interpretation terms and approaches.
This book is written for beginners. By “beginners”, in one way it is meant for those who have never touched the Bible and their knowledge of the Bible is like a blank sheet of paper that has zero writings on it. In particular, this book is written for many Chinese people who want to learn about the Bible and the Good News in it — those who know the Chinese culture well will find the messages of this book not hard to understand at all.
In the other way, this book is also for those who consider themselves to know the Bible pretty well and who even claim themselves to be Bible “scholars.” The reason is, to those who are used to interpreting the Bible from the traditional viewpoints, many messages in this book are so new that none has ever talked about.
I must admit, in the early stage of reading and accepting the messages of the six books, I myself had gone through some hard and painful struggles for a while. By all means, I was preoccupied by so many opinions in the past. It is like a sheet of paper that is full of writings on it — it is indeed hard to erase the unwanted words and re-write all wanted ones from the beginning to the end in one flow.
In the end, by the mercy and leading of the Holy Spirit, I have been counted as having passed through all adjustments and walked into a new heaven and earth in knowing God’s Word.
I feel strongly that the modern day people are like a group of people who live in a deep valley that is so heavily polluted by smokes and fogs that no matter how good a high-tech navigator we have in our hands, we could not find our way. The only way is to find the exit right away and leave this “confusing valley” completely. Repenting from our sin of unbelieving and knowing and accepting Holy Spirit’s revelations at the end point is the only feasible way for us to leave death and enter into life.
According to my personal experience, I see that the shortcut for those who have already had quite a lot of knowledge of the Bible to accept the messages of the six-book series is to enter as a beginner. In other words, you could put aside your previous old sheet of paper that is full of writings and take a blank sheet of paper to write new words on it as a beginner. In the end, compare the new words on the blank paper with those of the old sheet, then you will not jump for reflex and even guarding against the new opinions and approaches. This way, it becomes much easier for the Holy Spirit to renew and turn us around for the better.
For those who have never touched the Bible, this book makes it easy and simple for you to understand the basic points of the Good News. Some may appear to be hard in the beginning but will prove to be good in establishing a solid foundation rooted in the Bible to face the changing days of earth and heaven in the near future.
For those who have already believed Jesus and have some kind of Bible knowledge, it is a great challenge to accept and identify this book’s messages. However, as long as you have the heart to call for God’s help and the will to seek the truth, no matter what your mind is preoccupied with, you will be eventually renewed, changed and led through the whole turning process.
No matter what, I wish that this book will be helpful to all those who want to know God’s Word, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
At the same time I would like to remind readers about this: this book is simply a stepping tool for those who wish to know and understand the messages in the six-book “End Time Series.” If you truly want to know the Bible, you need to read the original six books that reveals the mysteries that are hidden in the entire Bible.
In addition, although each chapter of this book is by itself complete for the subject and relatively independent from other chapters, all chapters as a whole are related to each other and written in the order of being deeper and deeper. So it is suggested that you read through in one flow to get the full picture.
The second coming of Jesus becomes nearer and nearer and we as human beings do not have a lot of time to waste. May you catch the time that is left short, see clearly the truth of resurrection for all men and enter into the eternal life that Jesus will bring to all who believe in Him.

This book was written by Lot Tertius, a reader of our original six-book “End Time Series” published by the end of 2011 after he had completely digested all those six books. Morever, Lot Tertius had also written two more books beside this one. Thus, the entire “End Time Series” has expanded from the original six books to now a total of nine books. The following is a list of all nine books and their authors:
- Taichuan Tongs: “Numbers and the Roots of Numbers in the Bible”
- Taichuan Tongs: “The Sword for the End Times (I): Dividing Truths in Daniel & Revelation”
- Taichuan Tongs: “The Sword for the End Times (II): Dividing Truths in Gospels & Other Bible Books”
- Taichuan Tongs: “Manna (I): Rare Pearls in the Deep”
- Taichuan Tongs: “Manna (II): New Oil in the Press”
- Taichuan Tongs: “Manna (III): Nightly Dew in the Desert”
- Lot Tertius: “Cracking the I Ching Code with the Bible: Does the Book of Change Contain End Time Messages?”
- Lot Tertius: “How to Read the Bible at the End Point: For Beginners
- Lot Tertius: “Manna on the Sixth Day”
The two authors of this entire series penned all nine books based on the original meanings of the Hebrew and Greek words in the Bible. The author integrates the use of many modern biblical study tools such as Hebrew/Greek word dictionary, word roots and families, word concordance, English concordant vocabulary and grammar for the Old/New Testaments. By maintaining the tri-unity of the Bible – integrity, invariance and inerrancy of the Old and New Testaments in their original languages – throughout the six books, the author offers an objective, rational and comprehensive understanding of God’s Word, especially the part that is easily misunderstood by many.
The simplicity of God’s Law and the parallel relationship between God’s inspired Word, the Bible, and God’s Creation, the Nature, are clearly demonstrated in the numbers that are discussed in the first book, especially the nine roots of numbers that have been unprecedentedly discovered according to the “Trinity Root Function” hidden the Bible. From a completely different perspective and based on the tri-unity principle of Bible interpretations (literal, spiritual and numerical), this “End Time Series” has cracked open many Bible mysteries that have been perplexing students of the Bible for a long time. As a result, even I Ching, the Book of Change, which has long been considered the top ancient book of all other books by the Chinese, has its vale removed to show that its true content based on God’s natural revelation agrees with the Bible which is based on God’s special revelation.
Right now we are in the process of translating these nine books into English. We welcome anyone who has a burden to join us for this task. If you can help translate them into languages other than Chinese and English, it is even better. Our goal is simply this: let more people to have the opportunity to read these books. Please contact us if you can help.
