God responded to no Destruction happening in 1976 (as He had predicted for 10 years), on 18 January 1977. His re released, perhaps rather quirky, lesson on the topic was re-read to Brahmakumaris students at centres around
the world on 16 June 2013 : here it is in part...
'Are you still waiting for the final destruction? You are not still waiting are you?... You
are having so many thoughts about why destruction has not yet taken place. When will it happen? How will it happen?... Yes God did say it and will say it even now. Maintain this faith and intoxication and those people will come and bow down to you and say
: it is the greatness of your faith! Do you understand? Do not be afraid. Are you afraid to go to jail. You are not afraid but you have become distressed. You do not have the power to face. Just say that there was benefit in whatever God said, and that there
is benefit in it even now. We are saying the same thing even now. If you tell them with Godly intoxication and in an entertaining way, they will then laugh.
And...another word from God on why no 1976 Destruction 16 January 1978:
"When your limit was 1977, all the Brahmins individually should
be perfect in their efforts by this time. Accordingly you ar supposed to be ready for a changeover. Extension of time now granted is meant not for your personal endeavour, but every thought, word and deed of yours is meant to dole out to the souls of the world
all the treasures acquired from the philanthropist Father. To utilise this extra time, money etc. for self instead of for other souls is like breach of trust.
year is earmarked for your practicing philanthropy and doling out boons. ..check whether all your thoughts are devoted to world service. By such dedication you may easily become perfect....
Will you now still ask 'When will destruction come?" AM 16/1/78
