Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved..(because he was already saved but didn't know it till he was awakened)

Acts 2:22 You men of Israel, hear these words; Emmanuel of Nazareth, a man approved of God.(a better translation of 'a man approved of God' would have been 'a man proving He was God', *).among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as you yourselves also know.

Acts 2:23 Him.(verse above), being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God.(Matthew 26:53,54,56; Luke 22:22), you have taken and by wicked hands have crucified and slain.

Acts 2:24 Whom God has raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. 

Acts 2:25 For David speaks concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved.

Acts 2:29,30 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a prophet and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his.(that is, David's; another way of saying Christ came throught the lineage of David:.Matthew 1:6-16).throne.(Isaiah 9:7).

Acts 2:31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

Acts 2:32 This Emmanuel has God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he has shed forth this.(He became a physical human being), which you now see and hear.

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God has made that same Emmanuel, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Emmanuel Christ.for.the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, repent and be.(word 'be' not in original).baptized.(on 'baptism'; that is the Creator will immerse you {what the word 'baptize' means} with His presence and never leave you).every one of you in.(original can also mean 'into').the name of Emmanuel Christ for.(His name is His purpose:.Matthew 1:23; on the word 'for', see below here).the remission.(original is 'sending away', 'liberty', 'release from bondage or imprisonment' and 'forgiveness or 'pardon of sins' {that is, letting those sins go as if they had never been committed}).of sins and you shall receive the gift.(no works necessary to receive a gift from someone or else it's not a gift).of the Holy Ghost.

To paraphrase the scripture: 'Then Peter said unto them, repent {means to change from something toward something better, these things to change from, being those of low consciousness living of life and to the higher consciousness living of the Creator; what's these higher consciousness things?} and you'll be immersed into the body of Christ {that is, 'this will baptize you into'; baptized means 'immersed into'} with everyone else who also has repented (what's the word 'repented' mean?) and you're doing this because you want to get away from the sins you want remitted because you have now decided to change from them and receive the workings of the Holy Spirit in your life).(the word 'for', as used in Acts 2:38 "for the forgiveness {or, the remission}...", could have two meanings; if you saw a poster saying "Jesse James wanted for robbery", 'for' could mean Jesse is wanted so he can commit a robbery or is wanted because he has committed a robbery, the later sense being the correct one; so too in verse 39, the word 'for' {see here}.signifies an action in the past, otherwise, it would violate the entire tenor of the NT teaching on salvation by grace and not by works).

Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Closer to the original:.'For the promise.(Titus 1:2: 1John 2:25).is unto you, your children and all who are in the Lord.(*).God.'.(John 17:2,6,9) (one has to know whether or not he or she is 'in the Lord' and how would one know if he or she has awakened to this?).

And how many is God calling?

Acts 2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves.(Philippians 2:12).from this untoward generation..(save yourselves goes without saying that, one has been first in an awakened state)

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized. And the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers.

Acts 2:43 And fear came upon every soul. And many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

Acts 2:44 And all that believed were together and had all things common. (it was a time of great excitement; those who knew the truth, the believers, had a 'what's mine is yours' attitude', a 'just let's get the job done' attitude:.Acts 4:32)

Acts 2:45 And sold their possessions and goods and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house (went to each other's home for mealtimes), did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.

Acts 2:47 Praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church.(original for 'church' is 'of called' or 'those called' by their awakening).daily many who were awakened to being saved.(original for 'such as should be praised' is 'those praised'; praised for what? they were praised for their awakening to the state they had before the universe was formed {2Timothy 1:9} and it was this awakening that added them to the church and they were praised for it and welcomed).
