Kai – kaiV = “and” + eidete en emoi – ei!dete e*n e*moiv = “and seen in me.”
To see = aor-act-ind – eido = to see in the sense of knowing, or perceiving.
It means perceptive perspective or perceptive ability = the principle to understand.
Culminative aorist tense – regards the function of perception and metabolization of Bible doctrine as being completed but emphasizes the existing result of continuing to do so.
Active voice – the mature believer produces the action of the verb by having maximum epignosis or understanding in his right lobe.
Indicative mood – views the action of the verb from the standpoint of the supergrace reality of a mature believer.
“In me” – en – e*n + instrumental of ego – emoi – e*moi = “by means of me,” or “through me.”
“Through me,” or “with the help of me” or “by means of me” – the teaching ministry of the pastor-teacher.
ASV – PHI 4:9 The things which ye both learned and received and heard and saw in me, these things do:
NKJV – PHI 4:9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do,
KJV – PHI 4:9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do:
AMP – PHI 4:9 Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me,
TLB – PHI 4:9 Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and saw me doing,
NIV – PHI 4:9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put it into practice.
NASB – PHI 4:9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things;
If we were going to use the word “do” it would be the Greek verb “poieo.”.
Application – prasso = to practice, to execute, or to apply and execute.
Poieo is used for anything where you simply copy something that someone’s done, or whether you have normal function in life of doing something.
Pres-act-imp – prassete – pravssete = to “practice,” to perform repeatedly or habitually, to execute,
+ demonstrative pronoun tauta – tauta = these things.
Amplified Bible – PHI 4:9 Practice what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and model your way of living on it,
Prasso = to be executing or putting into action; to press on, to apply what you know to a situation, and solve it or execute it.
Customary present = what habitually occurs with a mature believer.
To get to supergrace you have to have maximum epignosis in your right lobe, and maximum epignosis must be applied.
They are getting ready to move across no man’s land to ultra supergrace, the second and last stage of spiritual maturity.
The stronger you become spiritually, the more opposition you will have from Satan and the kingdom of darkness.
This opposition will come in the form of your three great enemies, the world, the flesh, and the devil, 1JO 2:15-17.
Active voice – the supergrace believer produces the action, and the imperative mood is a command.
Doctrine must be in the right lobe to execute properly or put into action the great PPOG.
Doctrine must be in the launching pad of the right lobe.
You cannot apply what you know, gnosis.
You can only apply what you understand, epignosis.
Kai – kaiV [and], ho theos – o& qeoV” [the God], and definite article tes – th” [of] eirene – ei*rhvnh” [prosperity].
Eirene – descriptive genitive singular form is used in the sense of the Hebrew shalom = prosperity.
Nominative subject = theos because God is the source of our prosperity.
God says you will have no prosperity from Me until your gnosis is epignosis, and until you have enough to crack the maturity barrier.
“The God of prosperity, shall be” – fut-act-ind – estai – e!stai = “shall be.”
There is no prosperity unless it comes from God, or unless you are associated with a supergrace or ultra supergrace believer.
“With you” – meth – meq= + genitive plural of the personal pronoun su – humon – un.
PHI 4:9 These things [doctrinal principles] also you have learned [manthano – learned from a teacher under strict academic discipline] and received [or accepted through metabolization of doctrine] and having heard[under discipline] and have understood by means of me [Paul’s teaching ministry]. Be putting these into action and the God of prosperity shall be with you, all of you [supergrace believers].
ACT 10:34 “that God is not one to show partiality”
God has certain spiritual laws and principles that we are to follow concerning the giving of ourselves, our time, talent, and treasure.
If we cannot believe God’s promises in this realm, how can we be sure that we can believe His promises for eternal salvation and everything else we claim to believe?
One extreme concerns those people who hear that God wants them to prosper and follow Him simply for that reason.
The opposite extreme – the belief that prosperity for Christians is totally wrong.
When you do this, you will prosper physically, mentally, emotionally and financially.
God owns all the silver and all the gold in the world because He created all the wealth on this earth, HAG 2:8.
ROM 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
PSA 84:11 No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
DEU 8:18 “But you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth,”
3JO 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.
