No, Angelic beings are not like humans. They made a decission once and for all who they would serve, knowing their entire future. So, Satan rejected God knowing the hell that he would have to live in for eternity.

Salvation is only for humans or all the decendants of Adam. Since Adam sinned against God, the work of Jesus Christ on the cross is God's solution to redeem the seed of Adam.

Satan cannot repent, because he thinks he is right. He decieved himself first, before anyone else. He thought that he could be worshiped like God.

No, Satan has no chance of salvation..Jesus died for the sins of humans, not spiritual beings..Satans future has been predestined, and God does not change..

Is the believe that angelic beings have made a decision once and for all, just speculation or is there some chapter in the bible that indicates this?

Is there a passage in the bible that indicates Jesus only died for humans?
In fact ,didn’t Jesus die for the salvation of the spiritual part of man and not the physical body?

With God all things are possible, even if not probable. Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is the unforgivable sin, in that one can not forgive themself (repent) from the offense, therefore are sealed to their fate.

godspeed,

Why would satan want to repent?
He is given authority over hell and will not be punished. Sort of like being appointed the commander of a concentration camp. Supposedly, only those who "are fooled" by satan will be punished.

I don't usually get into chapter, verse discussions, but here are some that I think may answer your question

Hebrews 1:5-9 and 2:1-9 are good explanations about angels(who and what they are and why they were created)

Satan's greatest trick on humanity is to convince people that he does not exist.

To try and answer the original question, no, I don't believe that Satan can or will repent and be saved. He wants to be God, therefore he wants just the same power as the Lord, so he'll remain prideful, regardless of the outcome.

Satan wanted to be above God, not just like him.

God desires us to receive of His fulness and to become one. Satan was not satisfied with equality, he wanted His stars above God.


godspeed,
