One of the most misunderstood phrases in the Bible are the words “under the law.” I dont think anyone has ever bothered to sit down, and actually study out what this means. Let me show you.
When a criminal breaks the law, and is brought before the judge, he is “under law.” But if a person is obedient to said law, he never has to appear before a judge. Let me show you.
Now mind you, this was a “righteous judgment.” It was ordained of Yahweh, because even Yahweh told Isaiah, “I gave you judges at the first.”
But I want to show you this, because most people that sit in pews every sunday morning, have been lied to by their pastors, and they are ignorant of it.
Right here there was a sect (we were always told it was a Jewish sect, it wasnt, it was a Christian sect that said Paul condemned the law), that are still in the churches/behind the pulpits today.
Under – hupo, means to act covertly, to break.
Law – nomos, principles of conduct, moral living.
So a person that is “under law,” is classified as a criminal, and MUST appear before “the Judge.”
You are only condemned, if you are found “guilty of breaking the law.” But if you through the spirit, put to death the deeds of the flesh, you are not a “law breaker” anymore.
Let me explain; real simple. Witness Protection. A person that is a murderer, and has committed unspeakable crimes, if he gives himself up, and his “old lifestyle,” he is given a “new name,” and brought in to live a “new life.” Therefore the things that “Ryan McGinnis did years ago,” I am no longer held guilty for. I will not be held responsible for, I repented, received a new name, and live a new life. I am a new creation.
