Armageddon - What should we do while waiting for "the day of Jehovah"?

Peter mentioned that we should be demonstrating "holy acts of conduct and deeds of godly devotion":

"Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in holy acts of conduct and deeds of godly devotion, awaiting and keeping close in mind the presence of the day of Jehovah!" (2 Peter 3:11, 12)

Jesus Christ provided the example for us. So learning as much as we can about Jesus and his Father, Jehovah can help us know what to do to please them and it will also mean "everlasting life". (John 17:3)

Also, sharing with others what we have learned about God, His Son and the Kingdom was a command that Jesus gave:

"Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded YOU. And, look! I am with YOU all the days until the conclusion of the system of things." (Mt. 28:19, 20)

True Christians would most likely strive to keep diligent, even if Armageddon didn't come in their lifetimes.

Jesus gave this illustration:

"Let your loins be girded and your lamps be burning, and you yourselves be like men waiting for their master when he returns from the marriage, so that at his arriving and knocking they may at once open to him. Happy are those slaves whom the master on arriving finds watching! Truly I say to you, He will gird himself and make them recline at the table and will come alongside and minister to them. And if he arrives in the second watch, even if in the third, and finds them thus, happy are they! But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief would come, he would have kept watching and not have let his house be broken into. You also, keep ready, because at an hour that you do not think likely the Son of man is coming." (Luke 12:35-40)
