I will be saved (Phil. 1:19)

“I know

That through your prayers

And the help

Of the Spirit

Of Jesus Christ

This will turn out

For my deliverance.”

οἶδα γὰρ ὅτι τοῦτό μοι ἀποβήσεται εἰς σωτηρίαν διὰ τῆς ὑμῶν δεήσεως καὶ ἐπιχορηγίας τοῦ Πνεύματος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ,

Paul said, “I know (οἶδα) that through your prayers (διὰ τῆς ὑμῶν δεήσεως) and the help (καὶ ἐπιχορηγίας) of the Spirit of Jesus Christ (τοῦ Πνεύματος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ) this will turn out (γὰρ ὅτι τοῦτό μοι ἀποβήσεται) for my deliverance (εἰς σωτηρίαν).”  Only the Pauline letters use this word ἐπιχορηγίας, that means supply, provision, equipment, or support.  Paul knew that the prayers of the Philippians, including the support of the Holy Spirit, that everything would turn out well for Paul.  He would be saved or delivered from his bad situation.  Do you hope to get out of bad situations?
