The Bible says he will be thrown into the Lake of Fire, so though it is yet to happen, it is finished. Only the sons of Adam - humans qualify for salvation because Jesus came as a man (while retaining his Godhood) and He did not come as an angel.
Well, according to the Bible, no. I have few theories on why is this. 1. He is pure evil. There s nothing left to save. 2. He was completely guilty of his sin. We are partly guilty for our sins, because of the way Adan and Eve were before they ate the fruit, and because they were deceived. 3. He would never repent. 4. angels dont have and cant receive the Holy Spirit. They have no part with God the way we do. 5. Jesus died for humanity because by Adan s sin,l we all sinned. And Adan and Eve sinned by the snake. However, the angels didnt sin because anyone else did, They all sinned on their own.
Satan, as a member of the spiritual realm, is not a recipient of Gods gift of redemption and forgiveness. He is not like us, he is not human so we are not meant to treat him like a human being. We are not meant to forgive him and God has forgiven us.
the angel we call satan has already been judged and sentenced and cast from heaven. Its full sentence will be carried out at the end of time. Forgiveness requires a desire to be forgiven, a sense of remorse and desire for redemtion. Satan has none of those. It isnt sorry in the least for what it does. It is all evil and all hate and darkness. Forgiveness will never belong to it because it doesnt want forgiveness.

No, because he was thrown out of Heaven into Hell for trying to go against God so therefore I would say no he can't be forgiven unless he repents. But probably not even that considering I believe he committed blasphemy so it's just basically no....
1* Because people WANT to believe in a benevolent god, that is why there is such a disagreement on this question. 2* if god created satan, then satan is doing the will of god and thus cannot be punished for obeying god. 3* if satan is not controlled by god, then how can god punish something that he does not control? 4* Do you know satan personally? Then how can you say that satan will never ask for forgiveness, he cannot be forgiven, or just wants everyone in hell? To imply that you know all this stuff as a fact suggests that you are intimately familiar with the relationship between satan/god/human relationship. 5* if satan was causing people to do bad things in his name, why would satan punish such people, why not reward them? In the same manner why would god EVER forgive such people? 6* If god always forgives, then why bother being good? In the end, you will be forgiven right?
The Bible makes it very clear that Satan will never change his ways. Satan is absolutely opposed to God; he always has been and always will be. He isn't like any other creature; he is an evil, malevolent spiritual power whose single goal is to block God's will Satan's ultimate destiny, Jesus taught, is "the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matthew 25:41). God did not provide a plan of redemption for the angels as He did for mankind. The fall of the human race necessitated an atoning sacrifice for sin, and God provided that sacrifice in Jesus Christ. In His grace, God redeemed the human race and brought glory to Himself.Read more: http://www.gotquestions.org/angels-repent.html#ixzz2LpLCo9BZ
To The Best of My Understanding, satan aka the devil, Still Is Trying To 'Swim' Up The Prover- bial Stream With The Eternal Desire To Usurp Almighty G o d. There- fore, The Answer Is No. ><> ----------------- Scripture Quote ------------------ ><> Then the devil who had led them astray [deceiving and seducing them] was hurled into the fiery lake of burning brimstone, ><> --------------------------- ><> where the beast and false prophet were; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever (through the ages of the ages). (Revelation 20:10 AMP)
No. never. remember how he tempted Jesus in the desert? he tempts us every day That's why they say there is no rest for the wicked cuz the bible verse says Satan is like a roaring lion always looking about to see who he might consume. be afraid, be very afraid
Satan was never saved. He existed as a perfect angel prior to his fall, but he was never saved. Much like the condition of Adam and Eve before their fall. They were not saved at that time either. But they were perfect and living in the presense of God.
In order for God to forgive, there must be a plan of redeemption. God cannot forgive by just overlooking something. The price must be paid. No price has ever been paid for any angel. Thus, God cannot forgive Satan or any other angel.
He doesn't deserve forgiveness, and will never repent. If he did, that does not mean there won't be sin. Satan is not the one who causes us to sin, he simply tempts us. But he still greatly contributes to our sin by his influence. With our free will, we will sin by nature. But Satan still cannot repent. Why? This is not because God is lacking in mercy. The reason they cannot repent is rooted in their very nature as angels. Satan (or "the devil") and the other fallen angels (often called "demons") were created naturally good, but they became evil through a choice against God that was final and irreversible. Their act of rebellion is irrevocable (that is, cannot be taken back) because they possess a perfect angelic intellect which, unlike human intellect, is not darkened by ignorance. They could clearly see the true nature of their choice and all the consequences that would flow from it. As a result, their rebellion against God and His will was definitive. So, as the Catechism teaches, "There is no repentance for the angels after their fall, just as there is no repentance for men after death". (My answer continues in the comments)
How can you forgive an imaginary creature? The question here is; can a person that committed satanical rituals or crimes be forgiven? A real person, not an imaginary creature. Re-evaluate your question and ask again!

Persons who with full knowledge deliberately oppose God and Christ, hide the truth and propagate falsehoods make themselves guilty of sinning against God's spirit, a sin that cannot be forgiven. The Scriptures indicate that the creature known as Satan did not always have that name. Rather, this descriptive name was given to him because of his taking a course of opposition and resistance to God. At the time of Satan's act in causing Eve and then Adam to rebel against God, God said to the serpent (Satan): Dust is what you will eat all the days of your life. And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel. (Ge 3:14,15) Here God made it known that Satan, cast outside God's holy organization, would have no life-sustaining hope but would eat dust, as it were, until he died. The seed eventually was to bruise him in the head, which would signify a death wound. When Christ was on earth, the demons identified him as the One who was to hurl them into the abyss, evidently a condition of restraint that in the parallel account is spoken of as torment.(Mt 8:29; Lu 8:30,31)
No, Satan cannot be forgiven nor do he ever want to be forgiven by God. In the bible book of Genesis chapter 3:1-5, Satan in wanting humans to worship him rather than God challenged the rightfulness of God's rulership by starting the rebellion in the Garden of Eden. There was no turning back for him to start doing good for he thus became a ''Devil," which means "Slanderer." At the same time, he became "Satan," which means "Opposer." So the ransom sacrifice of Christ Jesus does not cover anyone who willfully sin against God, which includes Satan.
No for this scriptural reason. Heb 6:4 "?For it is impossible as regards those who have once for all been enlightened, and who have tasted the heavenly free gift, and who have become partakers of holy spirit, 5?and who have tasted the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things, 6?but who have fallen away, to revive them again to repentance, because they impale the Son of God afresh for themselves and expose him to public shame". ( NWT )
Forgiveness was never an option in this case. As a perfect angel, Satan made a deliberate choice to reject Jehovah’s sovereignty. Not surprisingly, there was no sign of repentance on his part.
However, when people ask about forgiveness in the matter, they may actually be wondering why Jehovah did not simply lower his standard and tolerate the existence of sin and rebellion. The answer involves a quality that is essential to Jehovah’s very nature—his holiness.—Exodus 28:36; 39:30.
God already has forgiven Satan, even though he has not repented. That is why in Revelation the punishment for his sin only lasted 1000 years. Because God was still merciful on him. But when the doors were opened Satan escaped his prison and spread sin across the world. He doesn't want forgiveness. He wants power. Satan Is sin. And sin does not have the ability to ask for forgiveness, Because sin is the same thing as revenge. The exact opposite of forgiveness.
NO! forgiveness is for the human race. his fate is told in the book of revelation He shall be cast into the lake of fire bound in chains with a crushed head.hell and death share a similar fate. other wise heaven will be just like earth.
Well, God and Satan don't exist, with both being ridiculous concepts that contain multiple paradoxes. Second the bible is either contradictory or demonstrates them working together "AND Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel." (I Chronicles 21:1) "AND again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah." (II Samuel 24:1)
To me he is an idiot who dragged us all into this life! other wise we would be in heaven drinking wine without feeling bad about it! He is not sorry for what he did am sure of that or ells he would've ask for forgiveness. God is all merciful and am sure if he was sorry enough God would forgive him but he didn't even bother!! such an idiot!!!!! I just wonder how can he dare God while he knows as a fact that he was created by him! He knows God has all the power to crush him and yet he didn't do it!Yes Satan is a big test for us but what about him!! If he changed his mind set and asked for forgiveness and God acutely forgave him maybe we can all rest in peace and don't wait for judgment day to come. we will be worry free for there is nothing to worry about since somehow the judgment day will be cancelled. But No! Nooo noo not what he wants! he wants to live and die in hell with company! Grrrrrrrrr!! that idiot!!!
