President Biden has threatened to impose personal sanctions on President Putin if Russia moves to invade Ukraine. The United States has imposed sanctions on foreign leaders before, including Bashar al-Assad of Syria and President Maduro of Venezuela, but never on a country of Russia’s international prominence. Liz Truss echoed Biden’s words, telling January 25 on BBC Radio 4 that the government had “ruled nothing out”. Biden’s comments drew an angry response from Moscow.
“Finally, the US leadership has openly said what it wants: Washington wants a loyal Russian president,”
Vyacheslav Volodin, the Speaker of the Russian parliament, said. Putin has been personally absent from high-level diplomacy taking place over the Ukraine crisis. President Macron said he would speak to Putin by phone on Friday to seek clarity about his position. January 24 Boris Johnson said that Moscow would face sanctions “heavier than anything” it had suffered before if it invaded Ukraine.
This is very significant. The Bible says that “the king of the south” will “push” at the king of Daniel 11:36-39. That king is Gog himself. The ruler of the Russian people – Putin. The major powers of the king of the south are the US / UK. The word “push” in the Hebrew is the word to “gore” as in a horned animal attacking. But the push is against an individual – the king himself. It is a personal attack – something that hurts him personally (as well as nationally.) Therefore Biden’s personal threat against Putin if he does invade would definitely fulfil Daniel 11:40. There is some delay between the “push” and the king of the north coming down. There is a colon in the original Hebrew text which indicates a delay. It is during this short delay that the inner ring wars occurs…
And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: [Notice the colon after the word him – it denotes a time gap between the next thing to happen..] and the king of the north [Russia] shall come against him [king of the south] like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, (Daniel 11:40 )
