“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

Johnny Lingo

A while back I believe I wrote a post on Johnny Lingo. I didn’t know much about YouTube, so maybe it had appeared there. Nevertheless, I just thought to look, and behold there it was, since five years ago. But, I recommend the oldest version, since it is the version I saw as a teenager at school just seven years after it came out.
It is a beautiful 24 minute movie, based on a true story, about how a young business-savvy islander (probably of the south Pacific) married a degraded (and by their standards, ugly and old) 20 year-old, only daughter of a crotchety widower and turned her into a princess, simply by letting her know how much he loved her. While all the other women on her island boasted of being 3- and 5-cow wives, Johnny offered 8 cows for Mahana, and she turned out to be reckoned as a 10-cow wife!
I love this movie because it showed what the Son of God did for the children of Adam. We were detestable to the angelic hosts. To them we were cockroaches, every one of us. Kill them, don’t let any of them get away! They will multiply if they escape destruction! The kingdom will become infested with them! They are made to replicate incessantly! They will be everywhere!
But, Jesus loved us anyway, and paid the highest price possible to marry us and have us for Himself forever. Maybe you will see the comparison and relive the thoughts of God and Christ in the distant past of eternity when They made up the plan.
