Welcome to Silver Lining Ministries

Please allow me to introduce us.

robert_crystal

My name is Robert Silver. My wife Crystal and I have been involved in various ministries over the last thirty plus years. We have organized and lead youth programs with the Napanee Standard Church and the Yarker Free Methodist Church. I was pastor of Hay Bay Evangelical Alliance Church from 2003 to 2009.
As well as minister as an itinerant preacher, I play acoustic and bass guitar. Crystal also plays guitar and is especially talented on the piano.

Together we form a small music ministry known as Silver Lining.
We do not advertise but minister as we have opportunity.
The Lord has indeed blessed us.

Over the last few months, the Lord has been leading me to start an internet ministry. I have been hesitant because I want to be sure it is the Lord's prompting and not just something I desire to do. The last thing I want is to start a thing of my own accord. Some events have happened lately that confirm His moving so it is time to step out.

Please pray for this ministry as we seek a location to produce webcasts. We are looking for a place that will accommodate a worship/teaching centre as well as a broadcast production area.

We are also praying the Lord will bring committed individuals to be part of this endeavour and that He will be the guiding hand as we proceed - Spiritually, physically and financially.

SILVER LINING MINISTRIES - FOCUS

robert_crystal

It seems there is a lot of "stuff" out there that is touted as the Gospel but is far from it. Mathew 7:21-23 brings forward a group of people who are in dire straights. They profess to have done wonderful deeds in the name of Jesus, even prophesying and casting out demons, but He commands them to depart for He never knew them.

These people are the focus of this ministry. They are not from "out there". They are those from within who thought they were saved and found out too late they were not. One can dwell in the midst of miracles and wonder and yet be lost because the focus is on the miracles instead of the Miracle Worker.

I am afraid there are many being added to this unfortunate group daily by leaders in so called "successful" churches today because they have an agenda instead of a ministry and as a result the true gospel is pushed aside and is replaced by a "tickling of the ears" or a trumped up orgy of emotion that passes for the moving of the Holy Spirit.

As a result, we read of the these terrified souls standing before Jesus and realizing too late they were decieved. When the Spirit of God moves on a group of people, there will be an outpouring of emotion; but I believe the genuine is far less prevalent today than some would have us believe.

In his book, A Heart Ablaze, John Bevere states the following concerning too many churches over the last few years;
"The emphasis has been on communicating God's promises and provisions, rather than His character and nature, to draw people to Him. Our messages have attracted people to a better lifestyle accompanied by eternal security instead of drawing them to know and serve the Lord of Glory. Many ministers are careful to deliver a positive message that will attract the multitudes; they forgo a strong, reproving message that will bring the changes we need to face a holy God."

Lord, help me preach the Gospel straight and true that souls may hear "Well done thou good and faithful servant", when they stand before the Righteous Judge of the universe."

1Th 3:13
To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

Silver Lining Ministries - Objective

robert_crystal

Silver Lining Ministries is an effort to extend the reach of various ministries beyond the confines of the buildings in which they were originally presented.

Isaiah 55:10-11 says this;
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

The further we can extend the reach of the Gospel, the more fruit will be realized.
