Psalm 46
Supporting passages
I was excited when I discovered the apocalyptic meaning of this psalm. I discuss it in connection with the time of silence in heaven where you will see essentially the same chart as below. re0801e.
1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Assurance for the time of trouble da1201, ps091.
2, 3  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. Courage for the terrible trouble on the earth. (both physical and social) re0614, re0617
4  There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. Assurance of the reward for the faithful. See on ps04802. re2201; is6212
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early [at the break of dawn].
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
The night of Jacob's trouble for the righteous. Assurance of victory as Jacob had from his God at daybreak ge3224 and je3006f.
8, 9  Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Under the 6th seal, the Lord responds to the unrestrained wickedness with cosmic chaos. He will stop those who would destroy each other and especially the righteous. r06g. re1713f, is6018.
10, 11  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.   10 - Be still Time of silence (of Jacob's trouble) reveals the unshakable fidelity of the sealed ones. The revelation of God's full power to bring righteousness to those who give Him their whole heart will exalt Him.
  11 - Exalted Our humble cooperation is evidence of the power of the gospel to change lives. See is62.
