"NOT UNDER THE LAW"

This means that anyone, who believes Yahweh and therefore keeps his commandments and the faith in Yahshua the Messiah [Reve 14:12], is not under the penalty of the law: The righteous no longer need the law over them, because they obey it; and because they obey it, they are not brought under its penalties: But if one turns from his righteousness and sins (1 John 3:4 "for sin is the transgression of the law), he puts himself back under the penalty of the law (back "under the law"): The law, as a schoolmaster, told us what Yahweh wanted and expected of us. It is our reference for right and wrong. This is why Paul said: The atoning sacrifice of Yahshua the Messiah takes away the decrees written against a person [the death penalty written for ones sins] when he repents, keeps the commandments of Yahweh, and keeps the faith in Yahshua our redeemer:

For this is the love of Yahweh, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1 John 5:3 (KJS)
