What you heard was from the Lord, because it is in His Word. I believe that the following verses are parallel passages to the Psalm 83/Isaiah 17 War:
Amos 1:6-8 Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they took captive the whole captivity To deliver them up to Edom. But I will send a fire upon the wall of Gaza, Which shall devour its palaces. I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, And the one who holds the scepter from Ashkelon; I will turn My hand against Ekron, And the remnant of the Philistines shall perish," Says the Lord GOD.
Zephaniah 2:4-5 For Gaza shall be forsaken, And Ashkelon desolate; They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, And Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, The nation of the Cherethites! The word of the LORD is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines: "I will destroy you; So there shall be no inhabitant."
This is just one area of many that will see destruction in that coming war. In the following study I have attempted to piece together all the parallel passages of the Psalm 83 War. These passages shown side-by-side show a much more detailed pictured of the war that is coming. Here is the study:
I pray for the people of all these nations, that their eyes will be opened to the Truth and if possible accept Christ before these tragedies unfold.

"If it's from the Lord..."
I woke up with the word "ashdod" on my mind a while back in October. I didn't know what "ashdod" was.
I looked it up and it is a city by the coast almost a straight line to the left of Jerusalem.
After asking the Lord why He would place that city on my mind, a few days later I read that Ashdod was hit with some sort of "Grad" style rocket. My understanding from an article I looked up is that it was on a Saturday night towards the end of October.
Since that time the Lord has awakened me with other things...usually Bible scripture pertaining to my personal walk with Him.
This morning I was awakened with the word Damascus and some words that had to do with it's destruction. It seemed like a radio or television announcement. It surprised me even though I know it's Bible prophecy.
I've asked the Lord what I should do or why He would share that with me. I don't think He would wake me up with those words for nothing.
I prayed for Ashdod when that city came to mind last month.
Maybe we should pray for those in Damascus who need to leave that city? I'm personally praying that anyone who will hear the Lord will follow any instruction He might be giving them at this time.
I'm not sure what else to do other than post this for others to read.
