THE PROPHETIC LEGACY OF LOIS RODEN

Here are some of Lois Roden's prophesies of the woman to follow immediately after her. I have a slightly
different view of this woman. I'll give my comments and reasons after I present Lois Roden's words.

"The church (woman) and the Holy Spirit are synonymous terms. Into the True Church is gathered the
scattered peoples of earth by the power of The Spirit of Prophecy, the Holy Spirit (Mother), to be
translated to the Heavenly Jerusalem – the MOTHER OF US ALL (Gal. 4:26). She is symbolized by the
woman, Sarah, Mary, Ellen G. White, and ANOTHER WOMAN, in the time of the Judgment for the LIVING,
who reveals ONE who never dies, even the Holy Spirit Mother, the Holy Shekinah, the Glory of the
Everlasting Father." (Lois Roden, "Behold Thy Mother," Part 3, 1980, p. 30).

""At the time of the Reformation in Europe and in Germany particularly, evidences begin to surface as to
the identity of the 12 tribes as represented in the Apostolic church, taken captive by the Romans and
absorbed into their economy. The voice of Luther broke the power of Rome in the Dark Ages and the
State of Germany officially recognized the work of the Reformation in 1555."

""The next man on the scene of action, Luther's contemporary, was John Knox, a Scottish reformer, who
was instrumental in gaining state recognition for the Reformation in Scotland in 1560."

""While the prophecy of the 430 years (of Eze. 4) finds its beginning with the reformation by Luther, and
others (Knox, etc.) the lesson is for this time, and the people of this age. Never before has this prophecy
been understood, and until now, no one ever received much from it, but when the time is fulfilled, God
makes it known." 1 S.R 127-128."

""According to the days [years] of the coming out of the land of Egypt will I show unto him marvelous
things." Micah 7:15."

""That is, the covenant promises are yet to meet their fulfillment. All Israel is yet to posses the land
promised to Abraham and his seed – Palestine. Luther being a type of Abraham, with a message of
justification by faith, was a type of another messenger to announce the latter-day church-state
confederacy and the One to break it, and deliver Israel into their own land from whence they have so
long been absent."

""As the 430 years applied to the Reformation under Luther, and others, we look at the date of its
recognition in the type, by the State of Germany in 1555 and add 430 years which brings us to 1985 – an
indication of recognition for a Reformation in our day."

""Likewise, we may add 430 years to 1560, the date Knox's Revival by the Spirit was accepted in Scotland,
which brings us to 1990, the long "hoped for" recognition of the latter day message of Reformation by the
Holy Spirit (to the "lost sheep" of the house of Israel), the twelve Star-Crowned woman in heaven,
Revelation 12."" (Ibid, "The Merkabah," Part 3, 1984, p. 29,30).

In 1985, Lois Roden herself began an attempt to reform the Christian church with her message.

""Beginning with the Feast of Tabernacles, 1985, the message of the Holy Spirit (Two Intercessors – Male
& Female) will officially go by Radio, Television, and the news media to the Western world via Canada and
U.S.A. and to the Mother Church (to prepare the way for the Kings of the East) in the Far East (by request).
After thirty years (1955-1985) of rigorous preparatory training the messenger of the Holy Spirit Mother is
beginning her world-wide ministry of, and through, the Angels of Rev. 7:2,3; Rev. 9:14,15. Pray for it! (Ibid,  
"Monthly Field Letter, Sept. 12, 1985," p. 4). This attempt at reformation ended with Lois Roden's death in
November, 1986.

In early 1986, Lois Roden began teaching the fourfold Holy Family, with a message of the Holy Ghost
daughter (see below).

In 1990, I sent my first hand written letter to a few members of the church. This ministry has grown in both
sophistication and power since then (witness this website). As Lois Roden, I am also a representative of
the Holy Spirit.

Lois Roden concentrated on accustoming the world to the idea of a female messenger from God. My
message is a call for reformation, specifically a return to the Sabbath and feast days of the Bible, and a
dire warning of the impending judgment of the living. We have in common a prophesy of the personal
earthly advent of the Holy Ghost.

Here is Lois discussing the fourfold Holy Family from the creation.

""Therefore, according to the Scriptures, we can see clearly, by the power of the Holy Ghost, in the story
of the Creation of Adam and Eve, that God (Elohim, Heb. – plural) is Male and Female. Gen. 1:26,27; 5:1,2,
TWO Adams – male and female made in the image of at least two Persons called "God."

""And God said, let us (Father and Holy Spirit, the Son and His Spirit (Holy Ghost), four, make MANKIND in
OUR IMAGE, after OUR likeness; let THEM have complete authority over the fish of the sea... (Heb. 11:3; 1:
2; Ps. 104:30)."

""So God (Elohim) created man in his own IMAGE AND LIKENESS of God created He him; MALE and
FEMALE created He THEM (an EARTHLY FATHER, Adam, and MOTHER, Eve, in Their Heavenly Image). And
God blessed THEM and said unto THEM (both)...have dominion..." Gen. 1:26-28."" (Ibid, "The Bride Of
Christ," 1986, p. 6).

Lois Roden also discussed the Holy Ghost as she was symbolized during the crucifixion.

""But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear and immediately BLOOD and WATER came (flowed)
out. That the Scripture (Zec. 12:10) might be fulfilled..." John 19:34-36."

""Two separate symbolic streams gushed forth from the Saviour's side, one of blood (flesh), and another
of water (Spirit); signifying in the first instance, His human (flesh and blood) and His DIVINE nature (Spirit
– water), and secondly, the division of Himself, like the FIRST Adam, to reveal His Spirit – self, The Holy
Ghost, His Bride."" (Ibid, p. 7).

Lois Roden also taught the Holy Family from Zechariah 4.

""And I answered AGAIN and said unto him, What be these TWO olive BRANCHES which through the TWO
golden pipes (prophets) empty the golden oil out of themselves? ...Then said he, These are the TWO
ANOINTED ONES that stand BY the Lord of the whole earth." Zec. 4:12,14."

""Please note, there are TWO living trees. Each tree has His OWN BRANCH from which flows the golden
oil through TWO golden pipes (Prophets: Moses and Christ) into the bowl (container, fem.) – a symbol of
the office of the Spirit (Feminine) of Prophecy, the Writings of the prophets, as given by the Holy Ghost."

""The two olive trees have been defined by the Spirit of prophecy, in times past, to be the Old and New
Testament, TWO trees, "the WORD of God to Zerubbabel (Governor – or symbol of the Holy Ghost Who
relates the Scripture to the prophets by direct Inspiration)" thus making the "two witnesses represent
the SCRIPTURES (two Branches) of the Old and New Testament," the two olive trees. (Great Controversy,
p. 267)."

""In the Old Testament (Tree) we see the revelation of the Father as ONE under the Mosaic dispensation,
by a prophet, Moses, with the PROMISE of a Son."

""In the New Testament (Tree) is the revelation of the "only begotten" Son as ONE, made in the Image of
God, the Father. (Heb. 1:3,5,6,13)."

""Here we have TWO MALE figures revealed as two trees. But what of the Branches? "Knowest thou not
what these be? Then said He, these are the two ANOINTED ONES that stand BY the Lord of the whole
earth." Zec. 4:13,14."

""In the primary application, one of the Divine guides of life, NATURE, in the light of Rom. 1:20 and Gen. 1:
26,27; 5:1,2, only, can tell us who these two anointed ONES are. The key is found in Gen. 2:21. From the
Tree, the FIRST Adam, a branch (rib) was brought forth. In the first step of creation, Adam was made in the
Image of Christ, his Creator (John 1:3), one person. In the SECOND step, "God took one of his ribs (a
Branch of him)...and...made He a woman, and brought her to the man ...bone of his bone and flesh of his
flesh." Gen. 2:21-23."

""Thus, Adam became two, Male and Female Persons, BOTH called Adam. Eve was made in the Image of
God, her Creator in Heaven. Gen. 1:26,27 says, "and God said, Let US make man in OUR IMAGE, Male and
FEMALE." Like the first earthly Adam, Christ his Creator (the heavenly Adam), by creating Adam and Eve in
His Image, Male and Female, revealed His CO-CREATOR (a BRANCH of Himself) – the Holy Ghost, His
helpmeet standing by Him (Zec. 4:14) in the creation of all things in Their Image, male and female."

""The sum of all this nature story is:"

""As the Heavenly Adam, the Son of God, and the earthly son of God, Adam, were made in the Image of
the Eternal Father in Heaven; then, the evidence is conclusive:"

""The Eternal Father has a FEMALE counterpart, a Branch of Himself, a co-creator standing BY Him, The
Holy Spirit, the Eternal Mother (Zec. 4:14)."

""All these symbols denote TWO SETS of Witnesses in Heaven: (1) The Eternal Father and Eternal Mother.
(2) The Everlasting Father (Christ) Isa. 9:6, and the Everlasting Mother (the Holy Ghost – John 14:26).
(3) In the earth, two SETS of WITNESSES -- The first Adam and Eve and the Second Adam (Christ) and Eve
(Holy Ghost)..."" (Ibid,  p. 9,10).

""This golden candlestick is the most REMARKABLE SYMBOL in the Bible pertaining to the church
(woman) of God. Its arrangement...reveals that the LAST SECTION of God's church, is to be the most
glorious church in all ages. This 'CONTINUED communication' by the HOLY SPIRIT to the church,
represented by the (TWO) olive BRANCHES emptying the 'GOLDEN OIL out of THEMSELVES' (The Shekinah
in the Old Testament and the Holy Ghost in the New Testament) into the (her) Golden Bowl, and its
complete set of supply tubes from the bowl to all its lamps, is to bring EVERY part of the entire body in
perfect harmony; a church without guile. Shepherd's Rod, Vol. 2, p. 286. These TWO "Olive Branches"
symbolize TWO manifestations of the SPIRIT OF GOD in a MESSAGE ABOUT The HOLY SPIRIT WHO creates
Her IMAGE, a message of a "likeness of herself" – the HOLY GHOST."" (Ibid, p. 14).

""And the Spirit (Holy Spirit) and the Bride (Holy Ghost) say, come. And let him that heareth say, come. And
let him that is ATHIRST (for the water of life) come. And whosoever will, let him take the WATER of LIFE
freely. Rev. 22:17."" (Ibid, p. 22)

Lois Roden also preached the joint rule of Christ and the Holy Ghost in the Kingdom of God.

""TWO in ONE. Two persons of the Godhead, if you please, to rule in the Kingdom of Glory on earth –
Eden restored – with a recreated Adam and Eve; EARTHLY representatives of CHRIST and the HOLY
GHOST who intercede for humanity BEFORE the Eternal Throne in Heaven in the Heavenly Sanctuary.
Rom. 8:26,34."" (Ibid, p. 18).

In most of her message, Lois Roden used the scriptures which pertain to the Holy Ghost as if they also
pertained to the Holy Spirit. For example, on the same page she said:

""But the . . . . . . . . . . . . . COMFORTER . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .which is the. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
HOLY GHOST,
WHOM . . . . . . . . . . . . . THE FATHER WILL SEND in . . . . . . . . . . . . . MY NAME, . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [Jesus'
name] he shall. . . . . . . . . . . . . . TEACH . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . you all things, and bring . . . . . . . . . . . . ALL
THINGS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . to your remembrance, whatsoever . . . . . . . . . I (JESUS) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .have
said unto you." John 14:26."

""The Comforter (the
Holy Spirit) . . . whom the Father will send (came forth from the Father also)." John
14:26."" (Ibid, "Christ And The Holy Spirit, Two Turtle Doves," 1978, p. 7).

The most obvious problem I have with this is that Christ Himself revealed the Comforter to be the Holy
Ghost.  Since the unrolling of the scroll, the advance in prophetic truth, had revealed the Holy Ghost
Daughter to Lois Roden before she died, she probably would have corrected this confusion between
Mother and Daughter if she had lived longer.

With the unrolling of the scroll, I have been given knowledge by the Holy Ghost which Lois Roden did not
have. First, I was shown that the pattern for the takeover of the world by the Kingdom of God was the
Battle of Jericho. (See No. 32, "Ramifications of Jericho.") I know, therefore, that the angel messengers
are the instructions of the battle between God and Satan for the earth, and the seven trumpets must also
be fulfilled before the whole earth is the Lord's.

I was also given understanding of the parable of the trees (Judges 9:8-15) as it relates to the Holy Family.
Lois Roden had the truth of the fig (Holy Spirit) and the vine (Christ), but lacked the truth of the olive tree
(God) and the pomegranate (Holy Ghost). (See No. 22, "The Holy Family.")   

The parable of the trees underlines the differences between members of the Holy Family.

God is the source of all spiritual understanding, the light of the world, the olive tree with its golden oil,
which symbolizes the prophetic message. Yet God is also a just and stern judge, capable of chopping off
those branches that bear no fruit. (See Romans 11:15-24.) "For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our
lawgiver, the Lord is our king; He will save us." (Is. 33:22).

The Holy Spirit is characterized as the fig, a soft golden sweet fruit with no rind and tiny edible seeds. It is
Her nature to be an intercessor rather than a judge.

"Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but
the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth
the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints
according to the will of God." (Romans 8:26,27).

The fig is also a symbol of the Christian church with its message of non-judgmental love, a soft sweet
message. The seeds of the fig are a symbol of the members of the Christian church, who are taught to be
meek and humble (small) and to turn the other cheek and resist not evil.

Christ is characterized as the vine in the parable of the trees. Christians know Him as the vine because
He told them He was. "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same
bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing." (John 15:5). Christ is clearly an intercessor
as well, both because He died on the cross for us and because He still speaks before God's throne on
our behalf.

"It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also
maketh intercession for us." (Romans 8:34).

The Holy Ghost is characterized as a bramble, thicket, pomegranate tree in the parable of the trees. The
fruit is red, with a tough inedible rind. Although Christ has told us that She is an intercessor (Comforter,
John 14:26), it is the nature of the pomegranate to be a judge.

The olive tree, the fig and the vine all ultimately decline to rule over the trees. Not so the pomegranate
(the bramble). "And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, then come and
put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of
Lebanon." (Judges 9:15).

The pomegranate promises to judge between the trees, to comfort and protect those who accept Her rule
and to destroy by fire those of the high and mighty, who refuse Her rule. As Christ says, "Wherefore I say
unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy
Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men." (Matt. 12:31).

The seeds of the pomegranate are about the size of grape seeds, white and tough. Each is surrounded by
a morsel of sweet fruit. The seeds of the pomegranate are a symbol of the saints of the Most High, who
ultimately inherit God's Kingdom. "And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom
under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is
an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him." (Dan. 7:27).

Like the seeds of the pomegranate, the saints are white, righteous. Like the seeds, the saints are
surrounded by sweetness, their families and those who fellowship with them love them for their sweet
natures. Like the seeds, the saints are tough, they are hardy, hard to kill, and under the protection and
guidance of the Holy Ghost, as symbolized by the tough rind of the pomegranate that surrounds them and
holds them together.

"Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: for I,
saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her." (Zech.
2:4,5).

It would appear as well that I differ with Lois Roden about the personal advent of the Holy Spirit. Shortly
before she began preaching the Bride of Christ, the Holy Ghost, she wrote:

"In the FIRST advent of Messiah, He came with the Holy Spirit in power, but in the SECOND advent, He will
come with the Holy Spirit in PERSON, who has to be announced, and revealed in a prophetic message
beforehand by Her earthly representative." (Ibid, Monthly Field Letters, November/December, 1985, p. 2,3
in the second series of numbers).

I am an earthly representative of the Holy Spirit, a fallible human being. At this time I believe that the Holy
Spirit does not appear in person during the end time. (If so, I think Christ would have told us.)

On the other hand, Christ DID tells us to expect the Holy Ghost to come as a Comforter (more next
Sabbath on this, God willing), so I teach the personal earthly advent of the Holy Ghost. Lois Roden also
made reference to her personal earthly advent.

""(3) In the earth, two SETS of WITNESSES -- The first Adam and Eve and the Second Adam (Christ) and
Eve (Holy Ghost)..."" (Ibid,  "The Bride Of Christ," 1986, p. 10).

Amo Paul Bishop Roden
This tract cover from Lois Roden's "Behold Thy Mother" shows both of the messengers who will
follow Lois Roden, the Holy Spirit Mother is seen above, in the guise of a dove, the Holy Ghost
Daughter appears as herself, with the wings of a seraphim.
Lois Roden prophesied not just her successor, but also her successor's successor. Contrary to the
leadership claims of several men, it is absolutely clear that Lois expected her message to be followed by
two female messengers. Some, like Charles Pace, who has been trying to take over Lois Roden's church
for over twenty years, have attempted to suppress the work of female messengers. (See No. 6, "King Of
The Hill.")
