Elijah the Prophet

In the new book of transcripts of Saba Yisroel - The Fires of Israel - available for sale online- Saba recounts that when his mentor R' Yisroel Karduner would sing the song of Elijah the Prophet after Shabbos, he changed the order of the discriptive titles of Elijah, the order that is given is: Elijah the Prophet, Elijah the Tishbi, Elijah the Gilaadi, and R' Yisroel would change it. Saba said that he always wanted to ask R' Yisroel why, but never got around to it. Saba said that even still we should probably stick to the order given.

So this theory I'm presenting is completely conjecture.... Maybe the first time R' Yisroel merited to see Elijah he appeared in such an aspect as that of the discriptive R' Yisroel would from then on mention first.
