From the vantage point of all the nations of the world, there could be no greater symbolism of the height of the greatness in wealth, might, and stature of the United States than the World Trade Center towers.
To better understand some of this symbolism, let's consider some of the history about these towers:
The World Trade Center towers were best known for its iconic 110-story Twin Towers. The towers survived a bombing on February 26, 1993, but all of the original buildings in the complex were destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Towers One and Two collapsed, and the others (numbers 3, 4, 5, & 6) were damaged beyond repair and later demolished. Building Seven collapsed in the late afternoon on the day of the attacks.
The towers were initially conceived as a complex dedicated to companies and organizations directly involved in "world trade," but they at first failed to attract the anticipated clientele. During the WTC's early years various governmental organizations became key tenants, yet it was not until the 1980s that the city's perilous financial state eased, after which an increasing number of private companies—mostly financial firms tied to Wall Street—became tenants.
The towers were best known for its iconic 110-story Twin Towers, but these two towers also served as an icon to the greatness of a nation. Even as the name indicates, they were established upon the ideal of a center for world trade, which the United States has fulfilled for several decades now. The towers were symbolic of the stature of Wall Street itself. The destruction of all seven towers of the World Trade Center, as the destruction of an icon, should not escape Biblical students concerning such symbolism. This is indeed prophetic to the collapse of the United States, which will occur at the opening of the Seventh Seal of Revelation. Such an event should no longer be measured in years, but in months!
The plane that struck the Pentagon in Washington D.C. on the same day should not escape us either. Prophetically, not even the military might of the most powerful nation on earth can escape the judgment of God.
