The planet is representative of Satan and the entity itself may have actually resided there at one point when it had fallen from the one true source. Satan's device may now only reside there but that's all speculation.
Although Jupiter would need to be about 75 times as massive to fuse hydrogen and become a star, the smallest red dwarf is only about 30 percent larger in radius than Jupiter.

I enjoy speculative theories as much as the next person, and indeed if we were back in an era where we didn't know any better, your theory could have some kind of validity to it. However, I must remind you that just because an atmosphere is hellish doesn't exactly mean it's "Satan's Lair."
As has been stated in this thread, Jupiter would logically be the more prime suspect if you're basing your theory explicitly on worldly conditions. Jupiter has some of the highest wind speeds in the solar system with patterns we still know very little about (at least that I know of, phage may correct me). It makes the hurricanes and tornadoes on Earth look like kiddie stuff, and the lightning storms look like bottle pops.
