Dear Doves,
You can define each of these three wars by how they each end. They each end in a different way which distinctly defines them;
War #1 is the 'first' Gog-Magog War which is the shortened great tribulation of Israel, immediately after which the rapture happens, on the Day of the Lord. Here is how it ends;
Ezekiel 39:21-
"I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all my mountains (of Israel) says the Lord God,  Every man's sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgement with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones and brimstone......Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand. You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops, and the peoples who are with you. I will give you to the birds of prey of every sort (eagles & vultures) ,,,,,to be devoured."
War #2 is the War of Armageddon which happens at the Second Coming of the Lord after the 42 month "hour of trial" great tribulation of the whole world. Here is how it ends:
Revelation 19:19-21
"And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the white horse and against His army. Then the beast was captured and with him the false prophet.......these two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimestone. And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh."
War #3 is the 'second' Gog-Magog War  which happens at the end of the 1,000 year peace Millennium against the unwalled villages of Israel. Here is how it ends:
Revelation 20:7-10
"Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to decieve the nations.......Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle......They went up and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from heaven and devoured them. The devil who, deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire where the beast and the false prophet are."
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
