No prophecy going on here

Second Thessalonians is written by our Apostle Paul to explain to us as members of the church, the body of Christ living in the dispensation of grace about a time period after we are raptured out of here.  He is not fulfilling prophecy today because he is dealing with the dispensation of the mystery. 

Romans 16:25
Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

Colossians 1:25
Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

Because God is on a time schedule with mankind, we are heading toward the last days of Israel’s program.  But, before we can get to their last days, we have to get to our last days of grace.  So the stage is being set.  Before God fulfills any prophecy, he will rapture the body of Christ out. 

1 Corinthians 15:51-52 KJB
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJB
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

He has to finish with our program before he can begin again with their program.

Romans 11:25
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

The world is being prepared for the last days, but God is not fulfilling those things today.   We are in the dispensation of grace. God is offering grace and peace to Jew and gentile, alike.
