As the second coming of the Lord approaches, news of the world’s end increases. Throughout the Church age, most see Daniel and Revelation as two major prophetic books in the Bible. For this reason, many have attempted to lift the veil on these two books to find mysteries concerning the Last Day of the Lord. As a result, one after another has fallen into the pit of date-setting for the Second Coming of Christ.
Rather than as prophetic books, Daniel and Revelation should be better received and used as two key handbooks for a full course of Christian growth, from the new birth to maturity. Granted these two books do contain prophetic mysteries concerning the End Times, but we can only comprehend those mysteries from these two angles: (1) God’s eternal plan and (2) a matured Christian life to live out this plan. Only then we can say that we have collected all diamonds in the rough from these two books.
Because of the mercy and special arrangement of the Lord, we can publish this little book “The Sword for the End Times (I): Dividing Truths in Daniel & Revelation” today. This book was written in a format similar to “Streams in the Desert” – each day’s message is short and independent, giving readers more reflection room, but the assembly of all daily pieces presents a full picture of one big puzzle.
This book was born based on the original meanings of the and Greek words in the Bible. At least seven tools are used to produce this book: (1) Old/New Testaments with Strong’s numbers, (2) an improved Strong’s Hebrew/Greek dictionary of the Old/New Testaments, (3) Old/New Testaments Hebrew/Greek word roots and families, (4) Old/New Testaments Hebrew/Greek word concordance, (5) the English concordant vocabulary of the Old Testament, (6) Analytical Hebrew/Greek Old/New Testaments, and (7) Numbers & Roots of Numbers in the Bible. The goal is to maintain the integrity, consistency and inerrancy of the Old and New Testaments in their original languages.
Some messages perhaps are in great contrast to what you’ve seen and heard. However, if you have a calm, objective and teachable spirit, you will not miss the Holy Spirit’s spot light of mercy, heart-felt gentle touching, and call for true repentance. In the eve of the Christ’s Second Coming, nothing is more important than a better understanding of this central theme of the Gospel in the Bible: direct correlation between the “salvation by the Cross” and the “Millennial Jubilee.”
In fact, the answers to questions such as at what hour Jesus will come and what day is the End of the World are not that important any more. What important are these questions: what must happen before and at the End? Where are you going to be ended up with after the Lord comes back – to be with God or to be casted in the lake of fire?

Postscript and Full List of Book in the Series
This book written by Taichuan Tongs belongs to our original six-book “End Time Series” published by the end of 2011. After 2011, we met a special reader, Lot Tertius, who wrote three more books based on his understandings of the original six books. Thus, the entire “End Time Series” has now 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 Double Portion”
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.
