Ga 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing^189 of faith^4102?

Ga 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith^4102 of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Re 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Re 11:12 And they (two witnesses) heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.


The Bible appears to be confirming that the famine of Amos 8:11 Points to the great tribulation. Because God forsakes the body, His voice is not heard at the start of the tribulation. When He began the separation of wheat and tares, the elect hear His voice (Bible unsealed) and understand unto salvation (depart out). The unsaved in the church, also hear His voice but understand not (resurrection unto damnation). This would relate directly to John 5:28 where God speaks of a general resurrection.
