LORD [Yahovah] liveth; [chay] and blessed [barak] be my rock; [tsuwr] and let
the God ['elohiym] of my salvation [yesha`] be exalted. [ruwm] KJV-Interlinear
46 The Lord
lives, and blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation, NASB
The living God, is expressed here as opposed to all other gods that are not living.
God is the source of life, who is life Himself, who breathed life into man, exhaling Gods breath and man inhales life to become life.
The living God, Psa. 42:2, is the God of our life, Psa. 42:8.
God is further defined and clarified as the rock, the place of safety, the place of security, the place of promise and peace. God is the solid foundation of life and of ones destiny forever.
Also, God is the God of our salvation. All three descriptions point to but one God, namely the Second Person of the Trinity who became man, who is God, and the one and only God, the living God, as defined here. For the Messiah is a man, and the savior is God, both persons existing in and are in fact one person, the God-man, the unique person of the universe, Jesus Christ.
Mans salvation is from and of God. The one and only living God. The Messiah as defined everywhere else in the Bible is a man. This making both savior and messiah a single person who is both God and man.
He is the living God who is eternal, and man who is the mediator between man and God.
He is the one who all reject. He is the one which religions detest. He is the one that philosophies ignore.
And yet, one day, at the end of human history, He is the one who all will eventually acknowledge.
