Hi Truthinlove. It's been hashed over so many times and hardly any new Scripture has been presented to help resolve the debate. Yet the Word seems clear if we just read it for what it says, and the language from Prophecy to Prophecy seems to connect so many of the end times battles into one final day, The Day of the Lord. I agree with Joel Isa 17 is part of the DOTL, as is Ps 83 and Eze 38-39. There are passages that are difficult to understand how they would come about, yet virtually all of these end with the same concept, Israel will know the Lord and they will be His people, and the gentile survivors will know the Lord is the Holy one in Israel, and that it was His Hand on them that accomplished their destruction. If we keep an open mind and pray about it the Lord will reveal His Truth, in His time. Israel must finish her punishment for disobedience, desolations are still determined until the end of the war.
Also I don't believe there are seven years left, but only three and one half. I also fail to see Russian involvment but perhaps the muslims of the far north such as the Chechyns in the coalition of gog/magog, and to the quarters , or flanks, the muslims of eastern Europe, and the stans of the steppe nations, like Khazahkistan and possibly the Uighers. From the west in general will come the antisemites from many nations, to join the invasion of the many peoples and armies with them. Big over view here, details found in Scripture.
God Bess You
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
