Please Send Through Whom You Will Send

Targum Yonatan says that this refers to Pinhas, who is Eliyahu, who will be sent at the End of Days.

Pirkei DeRibbi Eliezer (Chapter 40) also says similarly:

אמר לו לך ואשלחך אל פרעה. אמר לפניו רבון כל העולמים שלח נא ביד תשלח ביד אותו האיש שאתה עתיד לשלוח. אמר לו לא אמרתי לך לך ואשלחך אל ישראל אלא לך ואשלחך אל פרעה ולאותו האיש שאתה אומר אני שולח לעתיד לבא אל ישראל שנאמר הנה אנכי שולח לכם את אליה הנביא לפני בא יום ה



Although this is not the way the רד"ל explains it, but perhaps, Moshe Rabbeinu was asking for the complete redemption at this moment by asking for Eliyahu (or Pinhas) to be the one sent. Therefore, Hashem told him that I am only sending you to Par'oh - the Jewish people will be redeemed from this one exile, but this will not be a complete redemption. Eliyahu's turn will need to wait for a later date.

May that date come soon.

It talks about this in Malachi in chapter 3 verses 23-24. In Verse 22the Zayin ( number 7) that starts the verse is enlarged. If you skip 7 letters from here, you have tav shin ayin (770) encoded with 1 skip between each letter. I'm certainly not saying that this means anything; I'm just saying what I found. Why is the zayin large anyway?

This code doesn't impress me so much. You can go 2 letters later to make תשעד - 5774. Also, I'm sure that there are many of the same 3-letter combinations.

Also, I'm not quite sure what this has to do with this particular post, other than its close proximity to the verse about Eliyahu.

Both my business phone and my car plate number have 770 in them. It means a lot to me because it makes it easier for me to remember both.
