Ezekiel - Chapters 38-39

Ezekiel 38 - Is this prophesy concerning a time after Israel would be gathered again after God scatters them in judgement? He just told Ezekiel at length how Israel (and the surrounding nations) would be judged and punished, and then how Israel would be restored. Now this additional prophesy of how Israel would be scattered again. I'm confused.

Ezekiel 39:1-6 - Ezekiel 38 made it sound like Gog was an instrument of wrath against Israel, here God says he will strike down Gog. I guess I misunderstood, God was allowing (bringing?) Gog against them to strike Gog down and show His name to Israel, if I got that right.

Ezekiel 39:9 - Seven years worth of wood from burning the fallen enemy's weapons. That's a large army that was felled.

Ezekiel 39:17-20 - Israel always prepared sacrificial feasts for God, now God was preparing one for them.

Ezekiel 39:23-24 - It was important to God that the nations see Him sealing with israel's sin. It wasn't just their (the nations') sin that he judged, he judged Israel too. God does not show favoritism, sin is sin.

End time prophesies always leave me with more questions than answers. :-)
