David Cross is Regional Director for Ellel Ministries in Western Europe.
He graduated from Nottingham University in 1969 and qualified as a chartered civil engineer, leading to a varied working career, which included building roads and bridges in the Highlands of Scotland and, in the early 1980's, overseeing the construction of new town development in the New Territories area of Hong Kong. It was here that a huge personal change of direction occurred when he gave his life to Jesus.
Returning to Scotland, David became very active in church life and in leading ski tours in the Cairngorm Mountains. In order to further the Christian healing ministry in the Highlands, as an elder in the Church of Scotland, he and others in the local church made contact with Ellel Ministries in 1991, and two years later David and his wife Denise joined the Ministry at the international headquarters of Ellel Grange, near Lancaster.
David and Denise have three children and eight grandchildren, all giving much joy in the midst of very busy lives. Besides the thrill of sharing God's truth through teaching and writing, David loves walking and photography. His authoritative explanation of God's word has brought understanding and healing to many who have been confused and damaged by the ungodly ideologies of today's world.
God wants the very best for us, a place of safety in Him. God's covering is an expression which describes the spiritual protection and nurture which God provides for all those who are in a covenant relationship with Him. You cannot see His covering but you can certainly experience the effect which it has. Without Jesus, the world cannot truly understand God's covering but all of mankind desperately needs it! Outside this shelter, men and women are vulnerable to a hostile spiritual realm which governs this world and all those who remain in rebellion to the One who created them.
Covering is a principle which not only helps to explain the reason for so much dysfunction in the condition of man, but also gives more understanding of God's wonderful plan for restoration.
This book seeks to explain the reality of spiritual exposure when we are out of God's order, and how this has had an inevitable consequence on our health and well-being. Thankfully, there is also a precious truth of God's plan for the re-covering of damaged lives through Jesus. Praying for healing for ourselves, or for others, can be entered into with more confidence as we have a growing assurance of God's unwavering desire to cover us, where there has been sin, wounding and exposure.
In this book we are going to take a look at this principle of God's covering:
What is it?
What good is it to us?
How did we lose it?
How do we get it back?
This book is for Christians who are seeking more understanding of how we have been damaged and how God brings His healing into our lives.
