It is know that certain Hebrews, anticipating the redemption from Egypt, left 30 years earlier than did Moses and all Isreal..


They were the people of Ephraim (son of Joseph), who counted [the years] to the end [of the Egyptian exile] and erred . . . (Sanhedrin 92b)



Apparently, they had counted the 400 years of exile foretold by God to Avraham from that time, when in fact, as Rashi explains, the proper starting point of the prophecy had been from the birth of Issac, 30 years later. As a result, they left Egypt 30 years before the rest of the Jewish people, and were slaughtered. It seems like they had made a tragic mistake.


However providence, God’s hand in the worlds activities “these days” is rarely straightforward, and those who treat it like it is “miss out”. As they Just don’t see or have a clue whats going on.. Many times one has to wait to see the true results of “things”. Things are kept hidden so to preserve free-will..


Of the 15,000,000 Jews who lived in Egypt at the time of the redemption, 12,000,000 chose to remain in Egypt rather than leave with Moses, these died in the Plague of Darkness. Of the remaining 3,000,000 that went out, together with an additional 3,000,000 “Erev Rav”, most of them complained in the desert, and seemed ready to run back to Egypt the moment the going got tough.


None of that generation made it into the Promised Land except Calev ben Yefunah and Joshua.

Even Moses, Aharon , and Miriam did not make it to the Promised Land.


However, with respect to the people of Ephraim, it says:


Rabbi Eliezer, son of Rabbi Yosi HaGalilee said: “The dead whom Yechezkel revived went up to the Land of Israel, married wives and had sons and daughters. Rebi Yehudah ben Basira rose up and said: ‘I am one of their descendants, and these are the tefillin (phylacteries) which my grandfather left me from them.’ ” (Sanhedrin 92b)





Each large mountain and hill  have ministers assigned to them. Depending upon the height of one mountain over another, relatively-speaking, that is how much higher its minister is than the one for the lower mountain. Each day these mountains either increase or decrease in size, though it may not be noticeable to man. It is as the Sages say regarding the Land of Israel, that it was once four hundred  parsot, but it shook and shrank. (Gittin 57a) There are some mountains that increase in size and become stronger, as result of the power of the Heavenly minister over it. Sometimes the heavenly minister is eliminated, and so the mountain to which it was assigned will also disappear by joining to another mountain to which it is attached. It will then no longer be recognizable on its own. Sometimes, they remove part of his rulership from him and divide his dominion, giving half to another minister. The result is a split in the mountain itself. Occasionally, we see large rocks that have been split into two equal halves, with no residual rocks to be found.

Rain that falls is the level of “Mym Duchrin”, there is no spring that does not have a corresponding light in the upper land.

There is also a minister appointed over each tree below, and when it is terminated the tree dries up. Not only this, but every time a leaf falls from the tree, the minister above is accordingly weakened. From what we have just written you will be able to understand many wondrous things. (Shar Gilgulim)

The hand of Divine Providence is outstretched to alert people and rebuke. This is because: “Those God loves, He rebukes” (Mishlei 3:12). The rebuke comes so they return to the proper Holy path as shown by the Torah. There is a lot of Divine Providence that comes down to lead one to human completeness, as man is the central figure of the creation. It states in the Gemara , God asks about one who regularly comes to the “beit k’nesset” (house of prayer) and then misses a day. This is because God arranges reasons to cause the person to ask to himself whats going on. The fundamental element of the Name of God is the assurance that God’s leadership will help to attain true completeness, which is to resemble walking God’s paths. Know closeness God’s leadership is the secret of His great Awesome and lofty Name.
