I cherish my collection of your sermons on my computer, passing them out whenever I can. I have received such a love for Scripture and great men of history from listening to your sermons, Brother Phillips, I can't say enough, only thank you, and God bless your continued efforts in the ministry.
Brilliant Series! I want to offer you the very warmest gratitude I can for your sermons on SermonAudio. You have done such a wonderful service to the worldwide church of Jesus. I too am a real enthusiast for the Puritans, but I have never thought of preaching through a passage with Matthew Henry before. It is brilliant. It was so strengthening and joyful to hear your Matthew Henry sermons.

I really like your sermons a great deal. You seem to have a very gracious and loving spirit.
I am a believer who is a Pentecostal. It gives me great joy to hear and learn from a Baptist brother.
Thank you brother Phillips for your challenging, but gracious, ministry. This sermon is one of the most heart searching I have EVER heard. Satan would keep us comfortable in a counterfeit humility, and meekness in the things of the Lord, which is just fleshy and carnal. To those who truly want to follow Christ, and walk with Biblical humility and meekness, which is based on grace given to us in the new birth, should listen to this sermon. I am about to listen to it for the second time, as I want the Lord to instill this Christian attribute into my very being, for I need to be much challenged in this most important area of Christian living. I enjoy listening to brother Phillips, for it is proof that one does not have to shout to have an impact, when the Holy Spirit quickens a word to the soul, one knows!
A few weeks after I listened to the message on â€śThe Prophet, the Bears and the Childrenâ€ť, I was listening to a lady at my church complain about some children she knew who mocked the things of God. I told her about this message, and ended up making a copy of it so she could listen to it at home.
They sat down on their bed and put the message in to listen to it, when, after about 10 minutes, their youngest son (3rd grade) came in and sat down with them. He said, "I like this, momma" and continued to listen. After a few more minutes their oldest son (11th grade) came in and started listening as well. The parents looked at each other and said, "we need to get Brittany in here too." So they brought their daughter (6th grade) in and started from the beginning.
After the message was over, they sat in their bedroom with their children, all discussing the message for 2 hours!
My friend told me that they were talking to their children about the danger of mocking the things of God just a couple weeks before that, and now their children were hearing the message very bluntly and poignantly from the lips of a preacher in California. Let me tell you, it made a totally different and more powerful impact on the children as they recognized the seriousness of it like they hadn't before.
So . . .praise God for every good work He does in and through us for His glory. May He keep you and the saints at Grace Baptist humble and on the alert for an increasing measure of good work in Christ. (Eph. 2:10)
Praise be to God â€” I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I have listened to almost all of the sermons in the church history series by Michael Phillips, and a good deal of other sermons on other topics. We made mp3 copies of the church history messages and distributed them to a group of our friends. Three of our friends are leaving for East Asia today as they are going to encourage a brother who is laboring for Christ over there. We sent a cd with all of the church history messages with them to give to this brother. These messages have been such a blessing to us and our faith, that I just wanted to thank you and encourage you to keep on serving the Lord in the sincerity and truth of the message. May souls be turned and God be glorified!!
