4823 symbouleúō (from 4862 /sýn, "identify with" and 1011 /bouleúō, "to plan," which is derived from 1012 /boulḗ, "a resolute plan") – properly, to consult (counsel) together, like when people plan something out together with high resolve (keeping to their pre-set goals).

The only positive use of 4823 (symbouleúō) occurs in Rev 3:18 which refers to the triune God – showing the three eternal Persons of the Godhead working in mutual resolve (holy agreement).

["Buy from Me" tacitly alludes to the tri-personal nature of the Lord, revealed by the glorified Christ.]
