The prophets saw the arrival of the kingdom as a time of Israel's salvation and the blotting out of their sins. Daniel gave the timing of Israel's redemption through Messiah.

Daniel 9:24
SEVENTY WEEKS are determined upon THY PEOPLE and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an END OF SINS, and to make reconciliation for INIQUITY, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Daniels prophecy of the seventy weeks gives a time framework for the arrival of the kingdom which would include the END OF SINS, and the RECONCILIATION FOR INIQUITY. The seventy weeks is generally considered 490 Years from the decree to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem using the year for a day formula. 490 years from that decree brings us to the ministry, death, and resurrection of Christ, which includes the BLOTTING OUT OF ISRAEL'S SINS.

Peter first mentions it to Israel in Acts 2:38

Acts 2:38
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.

Peter's message to Israel included the BLOTTING OUT OF SINS. This is what Israel had been waiting for. This was the hope of the kingdom.

Acts 3:19
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. Those who heard the gospel and repented would receive remission of sins, and those who did not would be judged.

This was the PROPHETS VIEW of the coming kingdom, the remission of sins.

Acts 10:43
To him give all the PROPHETS witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remissionof sins.

Isaiah saw the BLOTTING OUT OF ISRAEL'S SIN. The result would be singing and shouting. This would be the redemption of Israel.

Isaiah 44:21-23

Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. I have BLOTTED OUT, as a thick cloud, thy TRANSGRESSIONS, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee. Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.

Peter's message to Israel is a sign that the kingdom had arrived. The blotting out of sin is a part of the kingdom.

Isaiah 44:22
I have BLOTTED out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

The BLOTTING OUT OF SINS is a part of REDEMPTION. This is also known as REMISSION OF SINS which was preached beginning in Jerusalem.

Luke 24:47
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

The GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM is also the GOSPEL OF REPENTANCE AND REMISSION OF SINS. THIS IS GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!
