What the time tells

Could someone please tell me if the phrase "what the time tells" is correct as the meaning " whatever the future holds"?
For example:
●From ancient times to what the time tells, ....
Thank you!

    We'd use "time will tell" to refer to how many of the unknown/hidden/secret aspects of present or past events will be revealed in the future, or how these events will evolve/turn out.

    Perhaps, "From ancient times, to times still to come.." would fit the style.

    Thank you so much!🤩🌸
    Is "coming times" or "times coming" also correct?
