"Seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." Revelation 5:6.

"His eyes were as a flame of fire." Rev. 1:14; 2:18; 19:12.

Fallen angels are called unclean or evil spirits. God's holy angels are "spirits" as well.

Here is Ezekiel's description of one angel: "Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the color of amber. And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem. . . ." Ezekiel 8:2, 3.
