Imprecise

Is exactly the nature of all prophecies.

I do not see the value in a prophecy unless it can lead to a prediction of the timne and sequence of events.

The after the fact rationalization and 'fitting' can be done for many more prophecies.

I prophecy that in winter when a great power has lapsed, there will arise from the seas of turmoil a man who will lead men to glory.

'great power'- I do not specify.
'lapsed'- collapsed completely? Become corrupt? become weak?
'turmoil'- what kind of turmoil? spiritual? physical? mental?
'glory'- Victory in war? new knowledge?

Indeed, for many people this prophecy would already have come true because so many scenarios can be used to fill in the blanks.
