comment Eliyahu HaNovi and Moshiach
A more specific source is found here: ------- במדרש רבה (דברים ג, טז) נאמר: "בשעה שהקב"ה גואל את ישראל, קודם שלושה ימים שיבוא משיח, בא אליהו ועומד על הרי ישראל... ואחר-כך אומר להם: בא שלום לעולם, שנאמר הנה על ההרים רגלי מבשר משמיע שלום (נחום ב,א)... באותה שעה מראה הקב"ה את כבודו ומלכותו לכל באי עולם וגואל את ישראל ונגלה בראשם". - See more at: chabad.org.il/Magazines/…

comment How exactly are the three tamei klipot the source of a forbidden thing?
note that one of the example the Alter Rebbe brings in Tanya is Orlah. For the first 3 years the tree's fruits get their vitality from the 3 impure klippot. The same tree's fruits receive their vitality from Kilipot Nogah after that (except perhaps for Shevi'it)

@IsaacKotlicky: Do you have a source for what you're saying. It is an interesting answer, but it doesn't seem to fit with the text in Bamidbar 36
