Eliyahu HaNovi

"Pinchas son of Elazar, son of Aharon the Kohen." (25:11)

QUESTION: Our sages write that "Pinchas zeh Eliyahu" - "Pinchas is Eliyahu" - since Eliyahu lived generations after Pinchas, the saying should have been "Eliyahu is Pinchas"?

ANSWER: Eliyahu was one of the angels whom Hashem consulted when he said "Na'aseh adam" - "Let us create man" (Bereishit 1:26). Afterwards, the angel came to this mundane world clothed in the body of Pinchas and lived over 500 years to become the famous prophet Eliyahu. Consequently Eliyahu preceded Pinchas by many years.
So was Eliyahu a person or an angel? And why is this a praise--aren't neshomos of Jews even higher than angels?

See Sefer Hapardos form the Ramak shar 24 Heichol 13-14.
