Yes, Scripture has been used as prophecy. There are many prophecies concerning the Messiah and even the time of His first coming. There is the Prophecy by Jesus of His resurrection after three days and His prophecy of the destruction of the Jerusalem temple to name only two of Christ's prophecies.

HalleluYaH !!! Praise the LORD! Holy! Holy! Holy!
We have been given the rebuilt Temple as a prophecy of end times. I hope to never see a rebuilt Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in my lifetime. I know it's coming, but as a Christian, I just don't want to be here when it does.
"And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days." -- Daniel 12:11
"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand: )
Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." -- Matthew 24:15-22
Whoso readeth, let him understand: The rebuilt Temple is the 'holy place' spoken of in Matthew 24:15. The 'abomination of desolation' is either the Beast or the 'image of the Beast'. It is not something 'to be wished for'.
