"The Way of G-d"

Part 2: “Divine Providence”

Ch. 1: “Divine Providence in General”

Paragraph 2

As we indicated above, the transcendent forces are the backdrop behind everything there is, and G-d Himself is their backdrop. We alluded as well to the fact that particular angelic intermediaries transfer all the potentials stored in the forces on high to the things of this world in order to actualize them here.

As such, whatever happens in this world, detail by detail, is first “programmed” into the relevant transcendent forces, moved along by specific angels, until they finally come to affect the things the transcendent forces are linked to.

It goes without saying, though, that each transcendent force has its own character and formation, as do its accompanying angels. It also thus follows that everything linked to a particular transcendent force is affected by both the force’s and its angel’s unique qualities.

That goes for absolutely everything in the world-- from the most infinitesimal to the grandest.

The point for our purposes here, when it comes to Divine Providence, is that it’s G-d Himself who oversees all this, in order to make sure that everything fulfills its intended role in the great Plan.

And the process is as follows: G-d first takes note of the array of transcendent forces, He then pays attention to the details that follow in their wake, and He finally supervises the angelic intermediaries assigned to carry out the transfer.

All that’s analogous to the way the Chairman of the Board of a huge firm would first want to be sure his executive staff is aware of its mission; that his customers are well (and profitably) supplied; and that middle management ensures the swift and efficient transfer from executive “vision” to successful implementation.
