The Branch Davidian Seventh-day Adventists were found to be in a relatively good position when Ben Roden died in 1978. With his wife Lois, he was able to acquire ownership of the Mt. Carmel property. No deadline was articulated for the end of the world. By the time Ben died, Lois had assumed the prophetic office for more than a year and had been almost widely accepted by some of the community's members. It is important to note, however, that her son George proved to be an obstacle in achieving full leadership of the group since Ben had assigned him the task of rebuilding the Temple and as a result he was to be referred to as ‘the man whose name is the Branch’.
