to forgive him? I know its a pride thing, satan cant just give up like that, but common, he knows 100% hes going to hell and he will burn for ever!
Maybe satan thinks that God will not forgive him? but surely, if satan TRULY means it, cant he be forgiven and all life will be good and no more
im curious if you can ask your angels this and see what they say, because this has always bugged me. At times, at night i feel so fearless that i
think if satan would appear i would want to simply ask him this question and see why he cant just ask forgiveness, but sometimes i hide under my

You have a slightly wrong view of Hell I think. See, Hell is not a place of
punishment, were bad souls get sent to if they have done something wrong.
Any astral realm started out as being completely blank, scenery and real
definition only appears when souls enter such a realm. Once, Hell was just
a blank realm as well, but after some souls have chosen to reject God, to
defy him and the Light, to rid their spirits of Love and compassion, they
entered this realm and chose it as their home.
Now, after all this time, after countless souls decided to join Darkness, this
realm doesn't look blank anymore, it looks dark and twisted, it is filled with
jagged fields, rocks, clefts, caves, large looming cities with architecture as
twisted as you can imagine, statues of demons and gargoyles on the ledges
and so forth. But this realm is not a place for punishment, it is simply the
home of those who chose to be loveless and dark.
Just like Heaven is the home of those who chose to be Loving and Light, also
for those who have not chosen yet. But at any time can a dark being choose
to change its ways and rejoin the Light in Heaven. Just like unfortunately,
some Light beings may choose to become dark. Especially in situations as
these, where darkness is trying to lure many people in joining it, even tho
that soul is Light at the core.
One day in the far future, Satan and his followers will realize that darkness
brings them no development, that it is a dead end, and they will choose to
become Light. They will be welcomed with open arms, but they will have to
spend many incarnations making up the damage they have caused. But
after every life, they will be welcomed into Heaven.
