I'm a little behind on the letters as I
am playing catchup up after my trip to Israel. I just wanted to say
that I am pretty much in agreement with your conclusions you give here
for the Gog and Magog war. You may be interested in the following two
studies that detail reasons for these conclusions we share:

"Gog/Magog Happens After Beginning of Tribulation"
By reading carefully Ezekiel 38 – 39; I am lead to
believe that the Gog/Magog battle will happen sometime into the
Tribulation. Here is why?
Tribulation and Rapture people are saying “Peace and Safety” (I Thess
5:3) This is happening right now. Israel is not there yet, but people
are saying it.
Then, Damascus, as well as the immediate surrounding territories are
devasted due to the Psalm 83 war (Isaiah’s prophecy on Damascus
probably happens initially or in retaliation of a first strike by the
Arabs) Stearman believes that the retaliation against Egypt will
cause Egypt to be inhabitable also.
Antichrist steps in and delivers the peace agreement that the world accepts (TRIB starts)
under the false comfort of the peace agreement spreads out into its new
territories thus beginning to live in “unwalled villages.” (This won’t
happen before the Trib…no way.)
A major worldwide judgment happens that virtually wipes out the use
of modern warfare and the Gog/Magog allies gear up with ‘wood weapons of
Russia gets jealous of Israel’s new riches and seeking
revenge with IRAN, attacks, thus begins the Gog/Magog battle. (The 4th
Seal of Revelation?)
The weapons of war could be ‘used for fuel’ into the Millennium period (see my previous post)
believe that Ezekiel is clearly saying Gog/Magog only fits after the
Peace Treaty…I see no way that Israel will live in “peace and security”
before the Psalm 83 war. NO WAY! Ezekiel 38:8c, clearly states that
Israel will be living safety.
