2015 -- The Jeremiah 49 Prophecy of Damascas destruction - Does the Bible's numbering point to 2015?

I am continually amazed at what the Bible's numbers seem to tell us. I have seen multiple examples where the Bible's numerics seem to relate specifically to dates in history. I wonder if the Jeremiah 49 description of the destruction of Damascus falling on some of the Bible's 2015 numerically related verses is not a coincidence. (KJV, ESV, NASB, NIV and similarly numbered Bibles) Following are two other historical events it seems to me Bible numbering predicted. :
  • Martin Luther and the 95 thesis in the year 1517 - Deu 15:17 Seems to be a verse that very likely describes the event in the year 1517 where Martin Luther nailed the 95 thesis to the church door. He is declaring himself a bondservant and the action of nailing an ear to the door can be interpreted as nailing a notice to a door. This makes much more sense to me than nailing an ear to a door. Deu 15:17 then you shall take an awl and pierce it through his ear into the door, and he shall be your servant forever. Also you shall do likewise to your maidservant.
  • Israel's Six Day War completes in 1967 prior to the 7th day - The Six Day War completed on June 7, 1967. Is it a coincidence this war was 6 days long and God tells us several times in scripture we are to work only 6 days and end on the 7th. This miracle war ended on 6/7/1967 and seems to be a God-planned event to happen on this particular date in history.  Exo 23:12 "Six days you are to do your work, but on the seventh day you shall cease {from labor} so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and the son of your female slave, as well as your stranger, may refresh themselves.
I'm only presenting this coincidence(?) here because I happened upon it this evening. Many people believe this prophecy may very soon come true. Is it possible the 10 verses about this event are not coincidentally numbered with cross Bible verse numbers of 20150 through 20159 which is a number that can easily relate to our current year 2015? Is this a set of scriptures that history may one day point back to as if God would be telling us he predicted this event. As of today it has not happened, but this is a coincidence we can watch to see what happens for the remainder of 2015.

The Bible's prediction of the Destruction of Damascus
The Bible's 20150th through the 20159th (2015--0 to 9?) - Jeremiah 49:22-31
22 Behold, He will mount up and swoop like an eagle and sprout His wings against Bozrah; and the hearts of the mighty men of Edom in that day will be like the heart of a woman in labor.
23 Concerning Damascus. "Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, For they have heard bad news; They are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, It cannot be calmed.
24 "Damascus has become helpless; She has turned away to flee, And panic has gripped her; Distress and pangs have taken hold of her Like a woman in childbirth.
25 "How the city of praise has not been deserted, The town of My joy!
26 "Therefore, her young men will fall in her streets, And all the men of war will be silenced in that day," declares the LORD of hosts.
27 "I will set fire to the wall of Damascus, And it will devour the fortified towers of Ben-hadad."
28 Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon defeated. Thus says the LORD, "Arise, go up to Kedar And devastate the men of the east.
29 "They will take away their tents and their flocks; They will carry off for themselves Their tent curtains, all their goods and their camels, And they will call out to one another, 'Terror on every side!'
30 "Run away, flee! Dwell in the depths, O inhabitants of Hazor," declares the LORD; "For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has formed a plan against you And devised a scheme against you.
31 "Arise, go up against a nation which is at ease, Which lives securely," declares the LORD. "It has no gates or bars; They dwell alone.
