The Exhorter


THE EXHORTER is a prophetic voice aimed at helping encourage, edify and build up followers of Jesus Christ. Sharing truth and insights relevant to today’s issues, teaching and applying principles and values of the Kingdom of God.

Since first published in May 1981 it has been a source of blessing, encouragement and inspiration to many readers over the years. Now available online the publication is free and able to be downloaded and distributed.

The First edition was entitled “Presence – People – Program” and was so well received that it became the launching pad of a ministry of encouragement and exhortation to the Body of Christ. The publication was posted free to a mailing list around the world, which by the late 80’s had grown to approximately 800. However, many more received and read The Exhorter as many envelopes contained multiple copies, which had been requested and then distributed. Plus, a number of churches and groups also copied and distributed it further among their own networks.

Robin J Johnson There is no doubt that we should be praying for our government.  First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in… Read More


The Grace and Joy of Giving

Robin J Johnson To protect the integrity of this edition and its author, please note that there is some self-interest presented in this article. When I think about giving there is always one story that springs to mind and which has always inspired me. It’s about people who could have used every excuse not to… Read More

Same sex marriage
