That was the first thing I thought when I read who wrote this prophecy, but it is half right nonetheless.

It was written 4 centuries before the date it talk's about. How can that be bad?

All I know for sure is that a Jewish pope would in all likelihood annoy a large amount of Muslims.
The Holy and Righteous John of Kronstadt recalled this vision which he had in January of 1901
After evening prayers I laid down to rest a little in my dimly lit cell since I was fatigued. Hanging before the icon of the Mother of God was my lit lampada.
Not more than a half hour had passed when I heard a soft rustle. Someone touched my left shoulder, and in a tender voice said to me,
"Arise servant of God John and follow the will of God!"
I arose and saw near the window a glorious starets1 (elder) with frosty grey hair, wearing a black mantia, and holding a staff in his hand.
He looked at me tenderly and I could scarcely keep from falling because of my great fear. My hands and feet trembled, and I wanted to speak, but my tongue would not obey me.
The starets made the sign of the cross over me, and calm and joy soon came over me. Then I made the sign of the cross myself.
He then pointed to the western wall of my cell with his staff in order that I should notice a certain spot.
The starets had inscribed on the wall the following numbers: 1913, 1914, 1917, 1922, 1924, and 1934.
Suddenly the wall vanished, and I walked with the starets toward a green field and saw a mass of crosses thousands standing as gravemarkers.
Note. 1917 is precisely the year of the Deposition of the Orthodox Emperor, and the end of the flow of Slavic monks to Athos, which caused a decline of more than 50% in number, and a worse spiritual invasion of " Modernists."
Perhaps the worst of these is Bartholomeos, elected in 1992, who hates Sacred Tradition, and is striving every single day to achieve union with every kind of heretic, Papist, Anglican, Monophysite, Nestorian or whatever, since he is a disciple of Freemasonry. Several other evil events came to pass in 1992 ( 7,500 A.C.
Thus St. Nilus the Myrrh-gusher prophesied: "On the seal will be written the following: 'I am yours.' 'Yes, you are mine.' 'I go willingly, not by force.' 'And I accept you in accordance with your will, and not by force.' These are four utterances, or inscriptions, which will be written in the middle of this accursed seal...”

This is not a Prophecy. It's a vague rephrasing of statements made thousands of years before. It's also a weaker and less intresting rephrasing. It's more like "bad bad bad" then anything else. It's a church thumping statement over the power of personalized spirituality.
Also needless to say, or so it seems to me, that it actually has very little if nothing to do with the true word of God over the orginaztion of the state of church.
.......Finally, I saw the cupola of Jerusalem.
Above it was a star.
Within the church millions of people thronged and still many more were trying to enter inside.
I wanted to make the sign of the cross,
but the starets grabbed my hand and said,
"Here is the abominaton of desolation!"
So we entered into the church,and it was full of people.
I saw an altar on which tallow candles were burning.
On the altar was a king in red,
On his head was a golden crown with a star.
I asked the starets,
"Who is this?"
He was very tall with eyes like fire,
a wedge-shaped beard,
a ferocious, cunning, evil, and terrible face.
He alone was on the altar and he reached his bands out to the people.
He had claws as those of a tiger for hands and he shouted,
"I am King I am God.
I am the Leader.
He who does not have my seal will be put to death."
All the people fell down and worshipped him,
and he began to place his seal on their lips and on their hands in order that they should receive some bread and not die from hunger and thirst. Around the antichrist his servants were leading several people whose hands were bound as they had not bowed down to worship him.
"We are Christians,
and we all believe in our Lord Jesus Christ!"
The Antichrist ripped off their heads in a flash and Christian blood began to flow.
A child was then led to the altar of the Antichrist to worship him,
but he boldly proclaimed, "I am a Christian and believe in our Lord Jesus Christ,
but you are a minister,
a servant of satan!"
"Death to him!"
exclaimed the Antichrist
Others who accepted the seal of the Antichrist fell down and worshipped him.
There is a brief explanation of words unknown and their meanings in the link provided...
people's minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions,
AND PRIESTS WILL BECOME VIAL MEN
Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds, and murder will rule in society.
