ANSWER: The passage of prophecy upon which the question is based is Isaiah 19:18-20, which reads: “In that day there will prove to be five cities in the land of Egypt speaking the language of Canaan and swearing to Jehovah of armies. The City of Tearing Down will one city be called. In that day there will prove to be an altar to Jehovah in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to Jehovah beside its boundary. And it must prove to be for a sign and for a witness to Jehovah of armies in the land of Egypt; for they will cry out to Jehovah because of the oppressors, and he will send them a savior, even a grand one, who will actually deliver them.”
There is no question that London has been the seat of global empire and Satan’s earthly throne for the past two and a quarter centuries. And as such it has devised numerous schemes to plunder, crush and destroy nations and peoples. For example, historian, Webster Tarpley, lays out the facts that London devised the Great Depression. Presently London is the primary center for FOREX trading, which was made possible by the dissolution of the fixed exchange-rate Bretton Woods system in 1973. After conning nations into deregulation in recent years London has deployed various hyena packs of speculators and asset-strippers to loot the nations.
But the foregoing notwithstanding, the prophecy of Isaiah is speaking to the future. “In that day” is in reference to the “day” in which the modern “Egypt” is taken down, which foreshadows the downfall of America. Needless to say that cataclysmic event has not occurred yet.
In view of the fact that it has always been the intention of the London-centered oligarchy to reacquire their wayward colony, but realizing doing so militarily is impossible, the empire has been pursuing various schemes for the past century of inducing America to destroy itself. Ultimately they are destined to succeed.
The fact that financial institutions associated with Wall Street in New York City are really an extension of the City of London financial system, and as such have already demonstrated that they not only have the power, but also the inclination to destroy the nation; coupled with the fact that the United Nations is headquartered there as well; which, as an institution has the potential to function as a supranational world government under extraordinary circumstances, the pieces are in place to “tear down” the present democratic system – America being the foremost champion of democracy. Basically, Wall Street is London’s Trojan horse. (What in Hell is JPMorgan Chase? – EIR PDF)
And interestingly, not only is New York City home to the institutions that are intended to destroy the nation, but in one of New York City’s boroughs, namely Brooklyn, is the world headquarters of the Watchtower Society, which, in spite of its many flaws, serves as an altar and witness to the name of Jehovah.
The rise of “the City of Tearing Down” coincides with the return of Christ. He is the grand savior whom Jehovah will send in response to the cries for help on the part of his people.
