Psalm 18 is a Psalm of David that tells of how much he was being tormented by his enemies. He was praying for His Rock of Refuge to come and save him. And that is just what his God did.
When you look at the scriptures you can see how they coincide with the last days especially Revelation chapter 8 and the trumpets. In Psalm 18:9 it says, “He bowed the heavens also, and came down…” All of these things start happening because of the Lord’s Presence.
Psalm 68:8 The earth trembled, the heavens also poured down (rain) at the presence of God: yonder Sinai quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
Psalm 97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
1Kings 19:11…And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord,

What does all this mean? The Lord has one purpose. He is preparing for new heavens and earth. He is doing away with evil and bringing a people unto Himself who will make up a Holy Kingdom. He is preparing His people to be holy and blameless before Him.
In Psalm 18 David is praying to be protected from his enemies. He is on guard to not sin and the Lord blesses that. The Lord shows Himself upright with the upright and contrary to the wicked.
Isaiah 34:8 For the Lord has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the cause of Zion.
He is not only coming back to bring judgment on those who have rejected Jesus but also on those who have rejected His people. David was set free from his enemies and became the King of Israel.
Genesis 27:29…Let everyone be cursed who curses you, and favored with blessings who blesses you.
In Haggai 2:21-23 the prophet is telling that in the future the Lord will shake the heavens and the earth and overthrow the throne of kingdoms (Satan) and renew His covenant with David’s line. He will set His people on thrones and they will act as judges. He will make them the head and not the tail. Amp. And the end of the matter is:
Psalm 18:50 Great deliverances and triumphs gives He to His king, and shows mercy and steadfast love to His anointed, to David and his offspring for ever. Amp.
