The aorist subjunctive is part of a hINA clause, hINA EN TWi ONOMATI IHSOU

by nature all subjunctives are potential and thus future. There are a number
of places in the GNT when the future indicative is used inter-changeably with
the subjunctives in hINA clauses. To translate the aorist subj. as future
here is, IMHO, is very close to what Paul was thinking. He considered that,
if this were God's purpose, it surely would come to pass.
