To Jacob,the reality was that Joseph had been torn to pieces by a wild animal as evidenced by his cloth soaked with blood.

Jacob couldn’t believe otherwise.

However,in actuality,Joseph,as at that time, was on his way to Egypt.

Daily,a man is faced with two options: Either to walk by sight(with ‘evidences’ to support his convictions) or by faith(no verifiable evidence)

It is a matter of time,that he who decides to walk by sight will soon discover that ‘Joseph’s cloth soaked in blood'(the reality) is a lie.He will then see ‘Joseph'(the actuality) face to face.
