Like the Universe, the word of God also is now finished-(John 5:34,36);-and shortened to the righteousness of Christ, available to all who believe in Him, thanks to the gift of righteousness to us and to Him abolishing the rigmarole of the over 600 Mosaic laws. God has His plans complete for mankind.
    2Corinthians 5:21 "For he-(God)-has made Him-(Jesus)-who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that we might-('might' not in original)-be made-(original Greek for 'made' paraphrased: 'to cause to be in us the awareness of our exchange' – His life for our death)-the righteousness of God in-('in', or 'through' or 'by means of')-Him." 

1Corinthians 1:30 "But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption."

Isaiah 32:17 "And the work-(original here in Old Testament, before Christ came in the flesh, was 'work', as it then referred to the application of the Old Testament laws)-of righteousness shall-(word 'shall' not in original Hebrew or Greek anywhere in the Bible)-be peace and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance for ever."-But the people back then never had the continuous heart to apply all these burdensome laws -Deuteronomy 5:29.
     Thankfully they are now all gone, thanks to Christ. A relationship with God the Father now is based not on keeping all the Old Testament laws, but made possible and based upon the righteousness of Christ in us, given to us as a gift when we accept Him (what he did for us).

Jesus life was His righteousness. The word righteousness in the original Greek (the New Testament) means 'the accompaniment of justice in character and content' and in the original Hebrew (the Old Testament) meant 'to be right'. 
    He died so He could give His life today to those who believe in Him, believe that He was indeed the Son of God here on Earth, in the flesh some 2000 years ago, for the purpose of reconciling -Colossians 1:20 "And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile-(word 'reconcile' here means 'to change from all things, to Him', or--His way of thinking -Philippians 2:5,6, and elsewhere the word means)-all things unto Himself, by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." Then what?

He made peace with God the Father for us, so that we could be brought into a relationship with the Father.

The-righteousness of the law (Mosaic Law including the ten commandments) was in doing it all correctly -Romans 10:5. The righteousness of God is in those whose 'robes' have been made white in the blood of the Lamb -Revelation 7:14
    This righteousness is of faith and is different -Romans 10:3-10. Verses 6-8 here are saying that Christ is in you; that His righteousness is in you, by belief. It's not doing good so that Christ, somewhere apart from you, notices you. He's in us! By knowing the impact of what He has done for you, you become "washed" -again, Revelation 7:14
    We are admonished to hold fast to this righteousness made possible because of the grace of God -Hebrews 12:15
    It is the grace of God that is salvation -Titus 2:11. It is in grace, we should become strong -2Timothy 2:1. Grace is abundant when you have faith and love -2Timothy 1:13; Colossians 1:4.
    If one is into believing rules and regulations are necessary to keep one right with God, then he is frustrating the grace of God -Galatians 1:6. The grace of God comes to you by believing in Jesus Christ -1Corinthians 1:4; Romans 5:15.-...continues
