The Trilogy of the Psalms - Part Two

I believe I have found parallels between the respective Psalms of each set. The following examples only focus on the ninth through the eighteenth Psalm of each grouping; Psalms 9 through 18, 59 through 68, and 109 through 118. These groups appear to describe the years leading up to the Tribulation, the seven years of the Tribulation, and God’s Final Victory. All references are from the New King James Version unless otherwise noted. For emphasis and clarity I have added underlining and italics to some of the text.

The Tribulation Period (Psalms 111-117)
Assuming the Tribulation is seven years long, the seven Psalms, 111 through 117, could parallel certain events of the Tribulation. These Psalms contain “Hallelujah” or “Praise the Lord” multiple times in a specific pattern. “Hallelujah” occurs in other Psalms, but not in the concentration found here. In addition, Psalm 117 begins with a slightly different form of “Praise the Lord,” for a total of eight such praises. There are four Hallelujahs in Psalms 111, 112 and 113. There are four Hallelujahs in Psalms 115, 116 and 117. There is no Hallelujah or praise in Psalm 114. If these seven Psalms show the seven years of the Tribulation, Psalm 114 would be the mid-point, when the Anti-Christ performs what Jesus and Daniel called the Abomination of Desolation. In addition, these seven psalms clearly form a Menorah Design. For more information, please click HERE.

While indicating events within the Tribulation period, these Psalms do not indicate a specific year. For example, Israel is protected for three and one-half years (Revelation 12:6), apparently beginning soon after the Abomination of Desolation, yet this protection is not described until the grouping of Psalms 16, 66 and 116. Likewise, Psalm 112 describes the results of the Rapture, which, if a pre-Tribulation event, would have occurred earlier.

The Temple/Tabernacle Restored (Psalms 11, 61, 111)
These Psalms seem to represent the early part of the Tribulation. It appears that the Temple or Tabernacle has been constructed at this time. (Tabernacle means dwelling place, so the Temple/Tabernacle would be God’s dwelling place on earth.) We know that a holy structure must be in place for the Anti-Christ to do the Abominable thing.

  1. (11:4) The LORD [is] in His holy temple
  2. (61:4) I will abide in Your tabernacle forever
    (61:8) So I will sing praise to Your name forever, that I may daily perform my vows. (in the Temple?)
  3. (111:1) Praise the LORD! I will praise the LORD with [my] whole heart, in the assembly of the upright and [in] the congregation (in the Temple).

The Righteous (Psalms 12, 62, 112)
This grouping tells of the Rapture of the Righteous/Godly! (Christians have been made righteous/godly through the Blood of Jesus.)

  1. (12:1) Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases! For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
  2. Psalm 62 is entirely about David depending on the Lord for protection from evil men. The text of 62:2 two is repeated twice. The Rapture will protect the Church from evil men. (See Isaiah 26:20-21, Zephaniah 2:1-3)
    (62:2) He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [He is] my defense; I shall not be moved.
  3. (112:3) (Speaking of the man who fears the Lord) And his righteousness endures forever.
    (112:6 )The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance. (See Malachi 3:16)
    (112:10) The wicked will see [it] (the Rapture) and be grieved;

How Long? (Psalms 13, 63, 113)
The Tribulation and the activities of the Anti-Christ seem to be wearing on the people of Israel.

  1. (13:1) How long, O LORD?
  2. (63:1) My soul thirsts for You;
    (63:8) My soul clings to you (New International Version)
    However, they still praise the Lord. Psalm 113 opens and closes with praise.
  3. (113:1) Praise the LORD!
    (113:9) Praise the LORD!

The Abomination of Desolation (Psalms 14, 64, 114)
Although there are four praises before and after this grouping, there is no praise in any of Psalms 14, 64, or 114. During the mid-point of the Tribulation years, the “prince who is to come” will stop sacrifices and offerings as prophesied in Daniel 9:27. This grouping represents a dark, evil time during the Tribulation, and “the earth trembles” (!?!).

  1. (14:1) The fool has said in his heart, “[There is] no God.”
  2. (64:2) Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
  3. (114:7) Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.
