SHEMONEH  (shem – o – neh)

Hebrew for the word eightOne who super abounds in strength etc; plenteous; causes to shine; anointing; over and above what is perfect and complete – first in a new series; a new order; symbolic of resurrection and the new creation.  The number of Jesus names.  Also symbolic of the “cutting away of the flesh”.
 
Example:         Noah, the “eight person” stepped out on to the new earth to commence a new order of things.  Eight souls passed through it with him to the new or regenerated world.  I Peter 3:20, II Peter 2:5 (Lev. 25:18-22, Ex. 22:30, Gen. 17:12, Col. 2:6-15, 3:1-4).      
                       
                        The firstborn was to be dedicated to Jehovah on the eighth day.  (Exodus 22:29-30)
 
                        Christ rose from the dead on the "first day of the week", which was the eighth day.  (Eight is the dominical number for everywhere it has to do with the Lord - it is the number of his names).
 
So eight, as the eighth day was over and above this perfect completion, and was
indeed the first of a new series as well as being eighth
 
Seven means that which is spiritually complete or satisfying while eight denotes that which is superabundant or satiating.  "In Ezekiel's Temple", seven steps led into the outer court, and eight steps led from the outer courts into the inner courts.  "Seven led from labor to rest, the eighth led from rest to worship".  (Ezekiel 36:23-36)
 
GENNOA PNEUMA (ghen - nah - o nyoo - mah)
Two Greek words. 
 
Gennoa means to procreate, to bear, to beget, to offspring. 
To duplicate oneself etc.  To be born.  (Verb)
 
Pnuema means spirit; breath or blast of air; wind, (spirit which is immaterial and invisible but powerful).  (Noun)  Roman 7:22, 8:6-17.  The implication of this combination of words is "birthed of the spirit", "spiritual offspring", "twice born - born again".
 
Note:  The majority of the people in churches today are the direct result of the
changed lives in other Christians.  They have evidently witnessed something of a
spiritual nature in the lives of those Christians that they desire to be manifested in them.  They are "spiritual offsprings" capable of producing "spiritual offsprings".
