YHVH our God is one of LAW. His Word is Life. To stray from Him is to embrace death (Rom.6:23/ Eze.18:4). YHVH our Righteous Father has a straight path for us to walk before Him (Jas.1:13-27) in Love giving him Honour and Glory (Rev.4:11). There is an effect for transgressing God('s Law /the ways of life).
Deut.30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:....
All have sinned (Proverbs 20:9/ 1 Jn.3:4/1 Jn.1:8-9/ Is.64:6/ Ps.14:1-3/ Rom.3:10-12,23/ Ecc.7:20/ Rom.5:12/Matt.5:20/ Jer.17:9/ Gal.5:4...)
When mankind first began to stray he was seperated from the tree of Life and exsposed to the effects of sin. Man would now have to return (Teshuva/Repent) and Partake of Atonement to have life eturnal.
Gen.3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;...

-When God says if you break his Law there will be a punishment, you cant simpley make Him a Liar (as the serpent attempted to claim) by just simpley saying your sorry. The wage (effect) of sin WILL (Must) be Paid. Torah (The Law) within itself contains the standard set forth to escape its condemnation. Its called ATONEMENT. Messiah fulfilled the Atonements. Prior to the crusifixtion we had types that pointed forward and following the crusifixtion we have a type that points back to the Atonements made in Yeshua HaMashiach!
-When one partakes of Atonement they are no longer "Under" the punishment of Torah cause in Atonement Torah is fulfilled! So Torah remains in effect. At judgement those that don't have atonement will be found guilty according to the Law.
-To be "UNDER" the law is to be in DEBT to the Law. Messiah pays this debt. Each will have to answer for his own transgression and those that have Atonement answer for their transgression in the name of Yeshua (which means Salvation of Yah). It's Always been the LORD our God that provides the Atonement (lamb).
Deut.27:26 Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.

* Rom.3:19,20,23,24,25,28,31 (Rom.3)
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law (*Rom.6:14): that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin...... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;.... Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law... Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. (Rom.6:15)
Rom.10:4 "For Christ is the *end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth" Christ is the Fulfillment (End- Greek #5056- conclusion, final point, goal, "end", purpose, of the Law- fulfilled).
Matt.5:17 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil"
Eph.2:15 "Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace".
Rom.6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not *under the law, but under grace.
Gal.3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
(And since all have sinned all shall be cursed, yet Mashiach has paid the price, took on the curse, for whosoever shall be drawn to the Atonemsnts of Yah.)
Gal.3:13-14 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (Is.53)
Is.54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
John the Baptist: "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world."
Yeshua (Jesus) HaMashiach (The Christ): * Heb.10:10,12,14,18/ Gal.2:20/ Heb.2:14/ 1 Cor.5:6-8/ Rom.10:4/ Jn.3:16/ Is.53/ Gal.4:4-5/
Gal.5:18-23 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not *under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Jer.23:5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
