Forgive my candor but that is really a bizarre question. God's plan of redemption is only for humankind, angels are not included. If your question stems from simple curiosity, so be it. However, if seeking clarity as a result of teaching you have heard at some church or group get out now and do not go back!

What for? Satan is the incarnation of the words incorrigible, irredeemable, hopeless. He is the embodiment of all sins. He cannot be saved, is not to be reckoned with. Best to ignore the prince of darkness.

"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies." (John 8:44, NIV)

Satan is the author of death...

Instead, concentrate on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! The font of Life!

The polar opposite of the deceiver is Jesus--the Savior of the world, who embodies the glorious promise... "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6), NIV

Let's keep our thoughts on the Father, Son and Holy Ghost... That will keep us far, far away--and safe--from the enemy...

“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
