"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28.
- Jesus Christ
"Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age? ”4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows." Matthew 24:3-8. What events are the beginning of sorrows (Matthew 24:8)?

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 - The Day of the Lord.
“But concerning the times and the seasons (Signs of the End Times), brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. 11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.”
Israel was in the process of making historic peace agreements with neighboring nations when the war with Hamas broke out. Historic Peace Deal "The Israeli Prime Minister went on to note that there is a “fly in the ointment … the fanatics ruling Iran will do everything they can to thwart this historic peace.” Many believe this could be the fulfillment of ("For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them) and that this could be the beginning of the Psalm 83 war.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-8 - The Restrainer removed and the revealing of the AntiChrist.
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering(rapture/caught up) together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin(Antichrist) is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he (Antichrist) may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He(Holy Spirit filled believers) who now restrains will do so until He is taken(raptured/caught up) out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”
The Antichrist will be revealed at some point to 'try' and solve and make peace out of the wars, economic, environmental, and social decline that are beginning to happen. It may appear like he is the savior of the world at first, but deception and persecution against mankind will be his underlying intent. What Will the Antichrist Do?. "He" that is taken out of the way before the lawless one will be revealed appears to be soon ahead.
