Elijah's Mission

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. [Malachi 3:23]

Elijah comes... only to distance those who were drawn near... and to draw near those who have become distanced... [Eduyot 8:7]

Nowadays, most of the world adheres to falsehood and its accompanying wickedness; "all mankind is deceitful" [Psalms 116:11]. 

In the future, Elijah will change that.  He will distance falsehood - שׁקר - (whose letters are close together) and expel it from the world; and he will draw truth - אמת - (whose letters are far apart) near so that the entire world will adhere to it.

We have to do our part. Can't always leave it to someone else to do the work. Speak up for the truth.
