Could any one please give me some advice so that I can understand the following sentence which I found in my text book?

-With new knowledge has come increased power to meet man's needs, and health and prosperity have resulted.

I understand the meaning of the sentence, but not the construction of the part in bold letters. I wonder if the this part of the sentence means

-power (to meet man's needs) has come increased
-increased power (to meet man's needs) has come

I appreciate any help you can give me.

    Thanks for the response!
    So 'increased power' is one phrase and not 'has come increased', is that correct?
    I actually tried to analyse svoc of this sentence and one of my bilingual English speaking friend told me 'has come increased' is possibly a predicate(vc)...
    I would appreciate if you can help me.

    Let's rephrase: New knowledge has resulted in increased power.
