Robin,
I don't agree with your interpretation in the above quote. Whoever wrote and rewrote "Revelation" seem to have used words loosely and disrespectfully in my opinion.
Take for example:
"Revelation 1:5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, "
 
........14His (Jesus') head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
 
........16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. "

MEANS THE FIRST TO BE RESSURECTED TO IMMORTAL LIFE!
 
 
........14His (Jesus') head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
 
 

Means that he is sharp, alert, as he searches, tests, or expresses indignation on God behalf

 
 ........16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
"
 

a sharp, long two-edged sword." What a fitting feature as Jesus is the one appointed to pronounce Jehovah’s final judgments against His enemies. Decisive utterances from his mouth result in the execution of all wicked ones.—Revelation 19:13, 15.

Robin,
we all are good at explaining what things mean when they directly don't look good and are not in agreement with our belief, we try to find their hidden meanings the way we want them to sound like, don't we?
 
To you it may mean what you have said but to me it means what it reads.
 
"Revelation 1:5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, ............"
 
My second quote: 
"........16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
 
you have tried to give your interpretation, but the fact is that its John who is describing what he saw:
I will quote the verses that will describe this a bit more:
:9 I, John, your brother and companion ............10 On the Lord's Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."

 12   I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13and among the lampstands was someone "like a son of man,"dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. "

I can understand as it reads, "his face was like sun" we all use some times such expressions, as it says, 'like'
But  when the person writing describes what he sees: "and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edge sword"??
 
As I said before, loose language and words are used here as in many parts of the Bible, and I believe that God does not use loose words, even when He inspires His servents.

Hebrews 4 

 12For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

John 3
16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

believer,
in your quote the writer is comparing, 'word of God' to double-edged sword.  And I understand it fine, because it uses the words 'sharper than'.
but what I have quoted above and I will quote again does not say the same. It is not a comparsion rather a narration of what John saw in a vision. Remember he is not doing any comparision of any kind here he is simply saying what he saw, let me quote it again:
:9 I, John, your brother and companion ............10 On the Lord's Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."

 12   I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13and among the lampstands was someone "like a son of man,"dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. ......................... 16In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. ..........."

Read again, and you will see that John is not comparing anything here rather saying what he saw in the vision.

honeto -

Are you saying you believe it is an actual sword coming out of the "son of man's" mouth?
 
That a vision is strictly literal?
