A man who was deeply troubled by his sins had a vivid dream in which he saw Jesus being savagely whipped by a soldier. As the cruel scourge came down upon Christ’s back, the dreamer shuddered, for the terrible instrument left gaping wounds upon the bleeding, swollen body of the Savior. When the soldier raised his arm to strike the Lord again, the dreamer rushed forward to stop him. As he did, the one who had the whip turned---and the startled dreamer recognized himself! He awoke in a cold sweat, realizing that his sin had brought this punishment up Christ. This was the work of the Holy Spirit. He convicts of sin.
