I've not seen the series but the book does occasionally reference real world events in the past, but only as an aside. All directly addressed prophesies are in the immediate future of the story, some of them are for the reader's understanding only and the characters never work them out.
The one in the image in your question is very specifically a plot point in the story.
From the book it's number 3819 and has quite a lot of plot in it:
When Orient's chariot inverted be, four wheles in the skye, a man with bruises be upon Youre Bedde, achinge his hedd for willow fine, a manne who testeth with a pyn yette his hart be clene yette, seed of myne own undoing, take the means of flame from himme to mayk ryght certain, together ye sharle be, untyl the Ende that is to come.
"Orient's Chariot inverts" A Japanese car, specifically Newt's car overturns near Anathema's house. He gets bruised and ends up in her bed and being given "willow fine" aspirin, which was originally a willow bark derivative. He's a witchfinder, but a nice boy really, descended from the witchfinder who burned Agnes.
