Bible Scholars agree there are over 1,800 Prophecies in the Bible contained in over 8,000 verses. Should a Christian Study Bible Prophecy?
People have studied those prophecies and they only come up with nonsense, for example, Issac Newton and William Miller. William Miller, a founder of Ben Carson's faith (seventh day Adventists), predicted that Jesus would come back to earth on 1844. He then changed the date a few more times but nothing happen, now they have another theory for what happened that year which is a core belief to them. They also believe pope Francis is the antichrist. Anyway, it is truly the most wonderful religion. Of course, not many people know about this.
I wouldn't put it exactly as you have here but I basically agree that this happens.
