They pulled back their offer.

Mexico announced on Monday it is withdrawing its offer to send relief to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

As Harvey hit Texas last month, the Mexican government offered food, beds, generators, mobile kitchens and doctors. No formal American response was ever made to the offer.

On Thursday, an 8.1 earthquake struck southern Mexico, killing 96 people and causing a crisis impacting about 2.5 million people. Adding to the nation’s woes, Hurricane Katia hit the Gulf Coast of Mexico, causing flooding and stretching emergency services even thinner.

“Given these circumstance, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to serve the families and communities affected in the national territory,” the Mexican foreign ministry statement said.

The ministry said the U.S. had taken nine days to respond to Mexico’s offer and that “only certain logistical aid” was ever accepted.

Although government aid never arrived, Mexico’s volunteer Red Cross sent food and supplies to storm victims.

That assistance, however, has been overshadowed by political differences between Mexico and the U.S.

For example, former Mexican president Vicete Fox tweeted that President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was “on the top of the vilest acts” Trump has ever “pulled off.”

“You’re destroying the legacy of greater men before you,” Fox wrote.

“It is the worst action you have ever done against the ones that cannot defend themselves,” he said in a separate video. “This measure is cruel and heartless, worse than any machine.”

Trump, for his part, has recently criticized Mexico on trade issues.


With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.


“With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other,” Trump tweeted.

Mexican media also highlighted the fact that Trump has not spoken about the earthquake.

What do you think?

I was thinking about global warming the other day.....   Thinking that's the only excuse Hillary hasn't used.....................YET............for her defeat.

for those who mock signs in the skies, maybe they should keep in mind the Jewish feasts and the calendar both, plus the signs in the skies. Not that I know much about it, but the correlation of Israel's rebirth and the blood moons, and the reclaiming of Jerusalem and the blood moons, is undeniable. This year, the Hebrew calendar is 5777. God's perfect number of grace.

Jea9, also known as the number of completeness, the end of the 6th millennium and the beginning of the 7th. God created the heavens and the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th. Numbers are a significant sign in the Supreme Architect of the Universes way of communicating with man concerning or place on the time line of prophesy.
Thanks for bringing this up, hopefully many will see the importance.

I took a mini-numerology class a long time ago.  One of the things they taught was when you have a large number to deal with, you frequently add the sum of the numbers and work with that.  So...I was curious about 9/11, so added 9+1+1=11.  And came across this info about the number 11:

The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 11

The number eleven is important in that it can symbolize disorder, chaos and judgment. In the Bible, 11 is used twenty-four times and "11th" can be found 19 times. Coming after 10 (which represents law and responsibility), the number eleven represents the opposite - the irresponsibility of breaking the Law, which brings disorder and judgment.

In Genesis 11, men rebelled against God and built the tower of Babel. He judged them by confusing their language, resulting in chaos.

Jehoiakim, one of the last kings over Judah, ruled for 11 years (609 to 598 B.C.). His successor, King Jehoiachin, rules for only three months before the Babylonians take control of Jerusalem in 597 B.C. and take him captive. After overcoming the city, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon sets up Zedekiah as a puppet ruler of Judea. Zedekiah, however, soon rebels against his masters. His reign is ended in 586 B.C., after only 11 years, when Nebuchadnezzar once again conquers Jerusalem but this time he destroys the city and burns its temple to the ground. Any Jews that remained alive were taken captive.

The apostle John saw 11 things in connection with the final judgment (Revelation 20:12 - 14).

Appearances of the number eleven

The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in eleven caves on the upper northwest shore of the Dead Sea, just thirteen miles east of Jerusalem. The total number of fragments found exceeds 95,000.

The 11 New Testament books that do not contain ANY direct quotes from the Old Testament are Philippians, Colossians, 1Thessalonians, 2Thessalonians, Titus, Philemon, 1John, 2John, 3John, Jude and Revelation.

The third and fourth most referenced Old Testament passages, found in the New Testament, occur 11 times. These passages are Daniel 12:1 and Isaiah 6:1.

The offended Kings

Scripture lists at least eleven kings or high-ranking officials who were OFFENDED when they were told the truth by one of God's servants. The men who offended themselves included the Pharaoh of Egypt (Exodus 10:28) and King Balak of Moab (Numbers 24:10). Kings Jeroboam (1Kings 13:4) and Ahab (1Kings 22:27) of Israel also got upset when told the truth. Several Kings of Judah got angry when confronted with words they did not want to hear including Asa (2Chronicles 16:10), Joash (2Chronicles 24:21), Uzziah (2Chronicles 26:19), Jehoiakim (Jeremiah 26:21) and Zedekiah (Jeremiah 32:3). Naaman (2Kings 5:12), captain of the King of Syria's army, felt insulted when he was told by the prophet Elisha to wash in the Jordan river in order to be healed. The last of the eleven who did not want to hear the truth was Herod Antipas (Matthew 14:3).

Promises, promises

The gospel of John records eleven very special promises.

  • A person can receive everlasting life by believing in the Son of God (John 3:16)

  • A person can have eternal life by eating, spiritually, Jesus' body (John 6:54)

  • By following Jesus you will not walk in darkness (John 8:12)

  • Those who continue in Jesus' word will be set free (John 8:31 - 32)

  • A person will truly be FREE if made so by Jesus (John 8:36)

  • God the Father will honor those who serve Christ (John 12:26)

  • Those who believe in Jesus will do greater deeds than he did (John 14:12)

  • Those who obey Christ's commands will receive the Holy Spirit (John 14:15 - 16)

  • Those who keep Jesus' commands will be loved by both him and God the Father (John 14:21)

  • Those who abide in Jesus will be fruitful (John 15:5)

  • A person can be Christ's friend IF they obey him (John 15:14)

How does the number 11 relate to EDOM?

The dukes of Edom (Edom was another name for Esau, Jacob's brother) were eleven in number. Although closely related to the house of Israel, a bitter hatred existed between the two peoples. The dukes, or chiefs, of Edom were Timnah, Alvah, Jetheth, Aholibamah, Elah, Pinon, Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, Magdiel, and Iram (Genesis 36:40 - 43).

Additional info on the Biblical Meaning of 11

Jesus was about 33 years (a multiple of eleven) when he died ('cut off' in Daniel 9:26) for the sins of mankind.
