    Romans 9 basically tells us it’s none of our business why God chooses to do what He does. I don’t think it’s necessarily bad to theorise, but ultimately, we don’t know, and we don’t need to know. All we need to know is God allowed us to live after we rebelled, even buying us eternal life at the expense of Jesus’ life.

  2. Luke Renville says:

    He didn’t have a place for those who rebelled because it was the first time. I’m thinking angels like us are immortal. Because God made souls that way, even ours.

  3. Bob Jones says:

    There is none, God does not tell us that, and many other things either, there are just some things God kept from us, and He has His reasons

  4. JC Medina says:

    It’s because when God created the angels (spiritual beings) He said they would live forever and our God being a sovereign God who doesn’t go back on His word doesn’t kill Satan because of that but instead promises to banish him to hell

    It’s All Over Scripture Really… to show us the clear differences of our choices… ☺️😇🙌
    Look at the struggles that everyone who Loved God came up against in Scripture…
    Look at the book of Revelation… It’s a Spiritual battle… ☺️ With that battle is a clear division God wants us to see who’s side we are choosing…
    Usually when evil is so strong in an area, God is at work showing us His Love and a place to run to…
    How else would we keep from following in the steps of evil if God had rid the world of the very choices (pride, ego, etc…) clearly not taken by Lucifer…
    This life on earth for now is like a test… Who will we choose… Gods ways or self… like Lucifer did… He’s basically as a reminder for us… for now 🙌

    God permitted Satan to carry forward his work until the spirit of disaffection ripened into active revolt. It was necessary for his plans to be fully developed, that their true nature might be seen by all. God’s government included not only the inhabitants of heaven, but all the world that He had created; and Lucifer concluded that if he could carry the angels with him in rebellion, he could carry the worlds also. All his acts were so clothed with mystery that it was difficult to disclose the true nature of his work. Even the loyal angels could not fully discern his character or see to what his work was leading. Everything simple he shrouded in mystery, and by artful perversion cast doubt upon the plainest statements of God. And his high position gave greater force to his representations.

  7. Donald Brillo says:

    God could employ only such means as were consistent with truth and righteousness. Satan could use what God could not—flattery and deceit. It was therefore necessary to demonstrate before the inhabitants of heaven and all the world that God’s government is just, His law perfect. Satan had made it appear that he himself was seeking to promote the good of the universe. The true character of the usurper must be understood by all. He must have time to manifest himself by his wicked works.

  8. Donald Brillo says:

    All evil he declared to be the result of the divine administration. It was his own object to improve upon the statutes of God. Therefore God permitted him to demonstrate the nature of his claims, to show the working out of his proposed changes in the divine law. His own work must condemn him. The whole universe must see the deceiver unmasked.

  9. Donald Brillo says:

    Even when Satan was cast out of heaven, Infinite Wisdom did not destroy him. The allegiance of His creatures must rest upon a conviction of His justice and benevolence. The inhabitants of heaven and of the world could not then have seen the justice of God in the destruction of Satan. Had he been immediately blotted out of existence, some would have served God from fear rather than from love. The influence of the deceiver would not have been fully destroyed, nor would the spirit of rebellion have been utterly eradicated. For the good of the entire universe through ceaseless ages he must more fully develop his principles, that his charges against the divine government might be seen in their true light and that the justice of God and the immutability of His law might be forever placed beyond question.

  10. Donald Brillo says:

    Satan’s rebellion was to be a lesson to the universe through all coming ages—a perpetual testimony to the nature of sin and its terrible results. Thus the history of this experiment of rebellion was to be a perpetual safeguard to all holy beings to prevent them from being deceived as to the nature of transgression.

  11. Donald Brillo says:

    “His work is perfect; for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth, and without iniquity, just and right is He.” Deut. 32:4

  12. Markus Ramchiary says:

    If a thief steals in your house do you kill him? Kicking him out is enough isn’t it? What if then he disguises and shows biscuits and takes away your dog?

    Excuse me no Scripture

  13. Larry Koester says:

    A simular reason he doesn’t slay you or I, the moment we sin. There is purpize behind his choices. Destroying Satan then and there would not have solved the problem. Just as destroying us sinful humans would solve the problem.

  14. Leo Villalobos says:

    God doesn’t go back on His promises but He will cast you away if there is no propitiation of sin, and we all know there is no hope for Lucifer. There is no plan of salvation for the devil and his angles. Nonetheless, “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” Romans 11:29

  15. MiahLanae Moxie says:

    1.Free will. God doesn’t like robots. Lucifer made a choice to rebel against God as many of us do.
    2. He would have to destroy us all if it was just a matter of destroying evil
    3. The existence of Satan allow God to exercise His Grace and love.

  16. Tammie Edwards says:

    16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc; 17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD. (Isaiah 54 NIV)

  17. Luis WuttheHell Claudio says:

    The underlying tone would be freedom of the will. If it was the case He punished or destroyed Satan when he rebelled we wouldn’t exist either. God would’ve destroyed Adam n Eve as soon as the sin was committed. Just view…

  18. Bong-king Maxion says:

    The scripture says;

    But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

    If you seek HIM first,
    He may or not reveal it to you.
    Because HE is GOD.

  19. Eric Licayan says:

    That was in the master plan of God to proclaim his Power ,to show his Love and mercy that is why He gave us the scripture for us to have proof and guidance. 1Tim.3:16

  20. Nancy Savino Soboluesky says:

    If God just immediately destroyed Satan, there would still be the angels who followed him. But if God did destroy Satan, the things which Satan accuses Him of would look true. God would be destroying His enemy, which is not what God does. 🧐😠

  21. Nikki Sheppick says:

    His time is coming, and it is short …. we labor under a false sense of “time” – 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
    5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
    6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
    7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

    8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

    9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
    11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
    12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. – https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/2-Peter-Chapter-3/
