Can Fallen Angels Be Saved?

2 Peter 2:4 Jude 1:6

From Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones: "Nowhere in the Bible do we read the fallen angels will be redeemed. Salvation is only for man. Why? The angels fell as men fell, so why shouldn't there be salvation for angels as well as for men? In the case of men, the temptation and the fall came from the outside. When Satan fell, he fell because of something within. The temptation did not come to Satan from outside himself. It was something that happened within, but what it was we don't know. And it is possible, I wonder that God in his infinite grace and kindness has drawn that distinction, because man was subjected to this subtility, this beguiling, this malign influence, this angelic power of this fallen angel, God has mercy and compassion and pity upon men and has provided for him a way of salvation. He has not done so in the case of angels."

(From Sermon "The Fall"; also quoted in "Creation to Babel: A Commentary for Families" by Ken Ham, pp. 133-34)
