On Gog and Magog, I recommend Mark Hitchcock's papera that he did at the 2005 pre-trib study group. He does a good job listing all of the options for the timing of the Gog and Magog invasion.
I lean towards notion that this battle begins in the Tribulation period commensurate with the opening of the second seal.
However, I think this passage is speaking of something more that just a one time battle. Because the passage concludes with Israel in faith (Ezek 39:22, 29), I see its results lingering all the way to the end of the Tribulation period since this is when other Scripture indicates Israel will be converted (Matt 23:27-29; Zech 12:10).
