    It says in Malachi 4:5-6 that God will send Elijah before the coming of Christ. The return of Elijah here on Earth will be a sign of Christ's coming and will be a preparation for Him.

    John the Baptist?'He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers.' Mal 4:5 NIV'Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. But the angel said to him: "Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth. Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God. And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous — to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."' Luke 1:11-17 NIV
