Acts 3:19 (KJV) Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; Acts 2:38 (KJV) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 'Your sins may be blotted out' 'Remission of your sins' Somebody reckons that blotting out of sins is INSTANT. Another insists it is a FUTIRISTIC event. Questions 1. Do forgiveness/remission/blotting of sins mean the same thing? 2. If they don't, what does each term mean? 3. When do forgiveness/remission/blotting happens,INSTANTLY or in FUTURE? 4. How do I know that my sins are forgiven/remitted/blotted?
