The Elijah Ministry ~ Pt 1 ~ Elijah PRECEDES 2nd Coming of Messiah

The amidah, or the standing prayer, has 18 benedictions (or prayers) embedded in it and is traditionally prayed by the Jewish people three times a day. Two of these 18 prayers are a prayer for the end of the exile of the 12 tribes of Israel and a prayer for the coming of the Messiah. The coming of the Messiah is associated with the coming of Elijah who precedes the Messiah. Ever since the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Romans in 70 AD, the Jews have prayed three times a day for the gathering of the 12 tribes of Israel which, for them, is synonymous with redemption or the coming of the Messiah. If Messiah is going to come and gather the 12 tribes of Israel and end their exile, it is also taught that Elijah must precede the coming of the Messiah.
