Psalms 91 for the Future

There's a promise in Psalms 91 that I believe applies to the coming tribulation of the Saints. The works in (red) are taken from the Hebrew, further clarifying the meaning of the word just before.

Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth (sits down) in the secret place (disguise) of the most High shall abide (stay all night) under the shadow (defense) of the Almighty.

For the one who will sit down (implies relaxing) in the disguise provided by the Lord, he can stay all night (remember the verse that says something about the "night being long in which no man can work") and will be defended by the Almighty

Psa 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge (shelter, hope) and my fortress: (stronghold) my God; in him will I trust. (confident, secure, safe)

We can rest in the Lord because He will be our shelter and stronghold or fort, and we can be absolutely confident of that

Psa 91:3 Surely he shall deliver (preserve) thee from the snare of the fowler (entangled, elsewhere by implication = demons), and from the noisome (calamity,wickedness,rushing upon) pestilence (destroying plague).

I think we are seeing more and more evidence of demonic attack on people. Here we are promised that the Lord will deliver and preserve us from the entanglement of demons and from the rapidly approaching plague. Whether the plague is a plague of evil spirits or a plague of filth or an actualy physical plague that brings physical death, we are promised that the Lord will preserve us from it.
