Eliyahu is such a central prophet in Jewish history that the Sages (Sanhedrin 98a, based on Malachi 2:23-24) teach that he will be the one to usher in the righteous Mashiach when Hashem so decrees. Yet, Hashem instructs Eliyahu that he must anoint Elisha to replace him as prophet. Though his strengths no longer fit the needs of his generation, we await the day when Eliyahu will once again rise up to herald the coming of the Mashiach.
