Satan doesn't reveal himself because Hell is full and he is trying to keep himself from being swamped by his adoring fans. There is no such thing as Hell Fire. Christians say that all the time to try to get people to purchase a ticket to Heaven. Do you know why there is so much advertising for Heaven? Heaven is boring! Why do you think Lucifer revolted? Why do you think one third of the residents revolted with him? Lucifer set up his own pleasure palace where people who died could live out eternity the way its supposed to be. In other words, where it is FUN. Where there is water and a vegetable in Heaven, there is beer and pizza in Hell. Where there is an open air monastery in Heaven, there is a local pub where you can watch a football game and wager on the results. Hell has become a fantastic success. It doesn't bother to advertise and, in fact, Lucifer really doesn't want any Christians. (Nobody can screw up a good party like a Christian!)
If you think Heaven is perfect, just ask a Christian to describe it. First they will tell you that they will sing praises to God (True, but boring) Then they will tell you that there is no pain and no worries. (Again, that may be true but tilling a garden and hanging up laundry isn't my idea of spending eternity.) In the end, however, they really can't describe it.
When Christians talk about Hell, they always talk about a Lake of Fire and eternal pain. Now I ask you, does it make sense for Lucifer to torture the inhabitants of Hell for turning their backs on a God that he himself turned his back on? That's like the Godfather of a the Mafia shooting criminals because they disobeyed the law. Being tortured in Hell is propaganda put out by Christians.
Heaven is half empty. Its so bad that God has reduced the admission to a simple declaration of "Gee God, I'm sorry." It hasn't worked very well. God has all the Christians running around begging everyone to join them (Its called spreading the Good News). Just confess your sins, they say. On the other hand, when was the last time you heard of someone selling their soul to the devil? Its been awhile, hasn't it? Trust me, Hell is packed on Saturday night. Satan knows he has a good thing going and has no desire to screw it up with invading Christians.
