Already There

Exodus 1:5 KJV
And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

God sent someone ahead. Joseph was in Egypt already.

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary:
“Literally, a state of complete preparation; but, by an easy deflection, the sense is, at this time, or at a specified time.”

  • When Jacob returned to meet his brother Esau, fearing Esau's anger he learned that God had prepared Esau and pacified his anger already
  • When he led his family to Egypt for provision and protection during the famine God had sent Joseph there already
  • When the children of Israel entered the Promised Land Joseph found that God had His angel there already
  • When Pharaoh enslaved the Jews with hard bondage, God had put Moses in a place of deliverance already
  • When Haman desired to exterminate the Jews from Babylon, God had placed Esther in the palace to save them already

  • When a perishing soul finds there is no help of salvation outside of he finds that God has sent Jesus before him already

God has His plan in a state of complete preparation. Everything is worked out already.
