2 Samuel 22:1-4 “David sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said: ‘The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior–from violent men you save me. I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. ‘ “
The Scene: (Upper Left) Represents a Christian who is running away from satan. (The boulder rolling down the hill.) The enemy has disguised himself as the Rock, Jesus.(Middle) The trench provided by the Lord, for the runner to leap into for safety. (Lower Right) Satan’s boulder has hit the larger boulder; Jesus, the Rock, immovable, has stopped satan in his tracks. The Christian has then jumped up from the trench and given the Rock (the Lord Jesus Christ) praise for his deliverance.
Psalm 94:22 “But the Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.”
Psalm 71:2-4 “Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me. Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men.”
