Dear Doves,
This is the SECOND Gog-Magog War at the end of the 1,000 years, but this one is stopped by God before they invade Israel by destroying their army with fire from heaven:
Revelation 20:2-3
"He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.........until the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released a little while."
 Revelation 20:7-10
"Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison, and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and MaGog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever."
The following is also the account of the SECOND Gog-Magog War  when Gog comes against a land of unwalled villages after the 1,000 years of peace.
 Ezeliel 38:8-16
"After many days (1,000 years) you will be visited. In the latter years (after 1,000 years) you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations and NOW ALL OF THEM DWELL SAFELY (during the 1,000 years). .......You will say,,I will go up against A LAND OF UNWALLED VILLAGES; I will go to A PEACEFUL PEOPLE WHO DWELL SAFELY, ALL OF THEM WITHOUT WALLS, AND HAVING NEITHER BARS OR GATES (after the 1,000 years)."
The description of the  FIRST Gog-Magog War in Israel begins in Ezekiel 38:18 thru Ezekiel 39:22, and is ended on the Day of the Lord on which we are also raptured.
Therefore there are two Gog-Magog Wars. The first one is the great tribulation in Israel which is shortened by God for the sake of the elect after which the rapture happens on the Day of the Lord. The second Gog-Magog War occurs at the end of the 1,000 years of peace, but God ends it before the invasion of Israel this time.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
