VIII. MAIN BODY:

Romans 10:5 (Amplified Bible)

For Moses writes that the man who [can] practice the righteousness (perfect conformity to God’s will) which is based on the Law [with all its intricate demands] shall live by it.

Romans 10:5 (New King James Version)

For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, "The man who does those things shall live by them."

A. Moses wrote about righteousness of the law

"For Moses writes that the man who [can] practice the righteousness (perfect conformity to God’s will) which is based on the Law"

There are two dispensation in the bible, the old and the new testament. The old testament or old covenant requires that a man's performance is involved in doing the Law, so that he can live by them by attaining righteousness which is of the Law. While the other one, the new testament or new covenant, which requires us to only believe by grace through faith and we are made righteous, but that is out of scope of our discussion for today in this topic we have.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (Amplified Bible)

For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;

Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]

2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (Amplified Bible)

So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.

For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].

Only JESUS CHRIST our LORD can satisfy the righteousness standard of the Law, that's why He said:

Matthew 5:17 (Amplified Bible)

Do not think that I have come to do away with or undo the Law or the Prophets; I have come not to do away with or undo but to complete and fulfill them.

so that through and in the LORD JESUS CHRIST we lived by grace through faith, fulfilled the Law, because of the LORD JESUS CHRIST that lives within us. This will shock the religious because all they have to do is attain, perform and do the works of the Law, while we have already done it in the Person of the LORD JESUS CHRIST within our hearts, we therefore believed and it's accounted to us in righteousness, that's why we are called "children of Abraham" not "children of Moses"

Galatians 3:6 (Amplified Bible)

Thus Abraham believed in and adhered to and trusted in and relied on God, and it was reckoned and placed to his account and credited as righteousness (as conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action).

James 2:23 (Amplified Bible)

And [so] the Scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed in (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on) God, and this was accounted to him as righteousness (as conformity to God’s will in thought and deed), and he was called God’s friend.
