Does καθίστημι indicate repetition in the 1st person future active indicative singular form?
Nobody is playing games. You need to know more of the basics before you can understand the answers to the questions you are trying to ask.
When you mention those medical things, they sound medical to me, but I don't understand them. I haven't studied medicine and don't have an interest in it. There is no shame in sickness, it happens to everybody in various ways, its just a part of the life we live here. When I go to the doctor, he says "You need ...", I say "OK". If I was to understand those medical things that you mentioned, I would have to study them. Take things step-by-step with your study of Greek. Things probably sound "grammatical" to you, but don't make a lot of sense.
As with medicine, one term can often refer to a number of different things. Type A, B, C ... or the like, so in Grammar. There are often a number of forms that are "symptomatically" the same (eg. aorist), but actually there are many different ways of getting to an aorist - and they broadly fall into two categories. If you want to understand the aorist (for example), you will need to study two things, the usage (symptoms) and the form (cause). A beginners course in Greek will let you do that to some degree.
You are being encouraged by Jonathan and others to not just have an answer to a series of questions that you happen to come across, but rather to learn to understand some of the theory behind what you are seeing and trying to understand in the Greek.
To your question about repetition (broadly speaking - something happening again)...
Greek has three ways of expressing repetition: that is what Jonathan is alluding to when he is asking your all those questions about where to find information.
"Repetition" is something like a symptom, which might come about from three causes: From the dictionary meaning of the word (As I discussed earlier the form with ἀπο- is a clear indication of repetition, but as with medical conditions, not all people give all the indications), from the grammar (your question: "Does the first person singular future mean repetition?" - Jonathan is suggesting that if you know some basic grammar, it will be clear whether person, number or tense can carry the meaning of "repetition"), or from the context (This is basically what Barry is talking about, and me too a bit in response to him.)
You can look in a dictionary to find the answer to the whether the word always means repetition or not (but you have seen clearly for yourself already, and Jonathan helping you has made it clear that it doesn't). As to whether the grammar shows you that, you will have to understand more grammar, that is where everyone says you are lacking - the weak link in your chain. As to whether context tells you that, it is clear from your posts that you have a good understanding of the context.
(look that up online to understand it) is useful because it breaks our understanding into two parts - the grammatical and the dictionary. A beginning grammar will teach you to parse.
For this word which we have spent so much time on:
- καταστήσω is first person singular future active of καθιστάναι (Dictionary form καθίστημι)
That's great now you know where to look in the grammar, and where to look in the dictionary to find the answers to your questions. You will also need to consider the context that it is found in. When you can put all those three things together, you will be able to make an reasonable choice as to whether the verb contains the meaning of repetition.
Your questions are great. People (especially Jonathan) are encouraging you to get enough knowledge of grammar to be able to formulate them more clearly and to be able to understand them when you find an answer.
