1 Thessalonians 5:21
"but test everything; hold fast what is good"
More than a product…
It is a process. The H.F.B. is not a product (handout sheets, sermon notes, word studies, etc.), but rather a process (meaning a continuous forward movement) of how to feed ourselves God’s Word.
Jesus said, “Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations…” To make disciples we must be disciples. The H.F.B. is designed for born-again believers of any age who desire to be serious disciples of Jesus Christ.
The H.F.B. will help organize all areas of study. It is geared to progressively train a person’s spirit and soul.
This system has been developed over many years. It is designed for individual study time. It will provide the framework on which our understanding of God’s Word will grow and develop in every area of our life.
What is the H.F.B.?
The H.F.B. is an effective study system that can cause the believer to flourish. This study system functions like the root system of a plant or tree that provides anchorage, absorption, aeration, and storage. (Mark 4:17, Ephesians 3:17, Colossians 2:6-7)
The H.F.B. is a Seed holder a place to gather God’s Word and accurately divide it. (1 Thessalonians 5:21, 2 Timothy 2:15 AMP)
The H.F.B. is a beginning place to write God’s Word (His Incorruptible Seed) down and then plant it in your heart and water it, believing God that He will give the increase in your life.
(Exodus 17:14, Exodus 34:1, Proverbs 3:3-4, Psalm 119:9-11, 1 Peter 1:23, 1 Corinthians 3:7)

(Deuteronomy 4:9, Deuteronomy 32:46-47, Ezra 7:10) (The main idea here is to transfer God’s Word or make them known to your children and your children's children with whatever system works for you.)
