A FRESH LOOK AT EZEKIEL 38 AND 39
http://www.etsjets.org/files/JETS-PDFs/17/17-3/17-3-pp157-169_JETS.pdf

Notice the Chronological pattern of these prophetic books they all end just as The Revelation does with the pattern of:

Day of the Lord DOTL,1000 years, Gog Magog, and the Eternal Kingdom.

I believe that Ezekiel also ends this way too, but the last 9 chapters (about the 1000 years) were perhaps intended to be circulated separately, which may make sense of Josephus’ idea that Ezekiel left behind “two books” (Ant. 10.5, 1) Either way its clear that Eze 37-39 ends just as the other books do, with this same chronology.

Premillennial Judgment Passages (DOTL) (all references are give or take)

Rev: 6:12 – 19:21
Zeph 1-2:5
Eze 37:1-11
Zec: 14: 1-5

1000 Year Period

Rev 20:1-6
Zeph 2:6-15
Joel 2:21-32
Isa: 65:17-25, 66:10-14
Eze 37: 12-28
Zec 14: 6-11

Gog Magog

Rev 20:7-9
Zeph 3:1-11
Joel 3:1-16
Isa 66:15-18
Eze 38-39:20
Zec 12:1-9, 14:12-15

Eternal Kingdom

Zeph 3:12-20
Joel 3:17 -21
Isa 66:19-24
Rev 21:1-22:5
Eze 39:21-29
Zec 12:10-14, 14: 16-21

I am sure that I may be off on some of the above, but I think its pretty close.
Also I would recommend this paper which although does not make any of the above claims it did make me see as never before the importance of the Ezekiel 40-48 in relation to Zechariah:
