If Satan's goal is to mess with God's plan, why doesn't he announce he won't accept any more people into Hell?

Wouldn't that really mess with God? If Satan did that, then God would have to either force him to start taking them, start letting everyone into Heaven, find a new Hell, or just let the dead roam around Earth like nothing happened to them. Any which way, it let everybody see what a real dick this God fellow is being about that whole apple thing.

Update:

Neo, it's your Hell. You go.

    Some Deathbed Quotes and Last Words of Famous Men and Women

    Here is a collection of last or dying words of some famous men and women. These quotes were taken from "Voices from the Edge of Eternity" compiled by John Myers. Some of these statements are believed to have been made on the deathbed, others when the speaker was contemplating his or her own demise.

    Elizabeh B. Browning (famous English poetess on her deathbed): "It is beautiful!"

    Lady Jane Grey (Queen of England for 10 days in 1554 when facing her execution): "Lord, into Thy hands I commend my spirit!"

    Thomas A. Edison (famous inventor on his deathbed): "It is very beautiful over there."

    Thomas Paine (of American Revolutionary fame): "Away with you, and your God too! Leave the room instantly! All that you have uttered are lies, filthy lies, and if I had a little more time I would prove it, as I did about your impostor, Jesus Christ." (Upon being visited by a Catholic priest on his deathbed.) Paine's last recorded words were "My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?"

    Michelangelo Buonarotti (famous painter): "Throughout life remember the sufferings of Jesus."

    Sir Walter Raleigh (famous English admiral when facing his execution): "It matters little how the head lies if the heart be right. Why dost thou not strike?" (The admiral was beheaded in 1618.)

    Oliver Cromwell: "The devil is ready to seduce us, and I have been seduced."

    Edward Augustus (father of Queen Victoria on his death bed): "Remember, if I am to be saved, it is not as a prince, but as a sinner."

    Ommyade, Sultan of Spain (died A.D. 961): "Fifty years have passed since first I was Caliph. Riches, honors, pleasures -- I have enjoyed all. In this long time of seeming happiness I have numbered the days on which I have been happy. Fourteen."

    Cardinal Wolsey (of Henry VIII fame): "Had I but served God as diligently as I have served the king, He would not have given me over in my gray hairs. But this is the just reward that I must received for my incessant pains and study, not regarding my service to God, but only to my prince."

    Charles Talleyrand (French statesman, died 1838): "I am suffering, sire, the pangs of the damned!" (Spoken, it is believed, on his deathbed.)

    Napoleon Bonaparte: "I die before my time, and my body will be given back to the earth to become food for worms. Such is the fate of him who has been called the great Napoleon. What an abyss lies between my deep misery and the eternal kingdom of Christ!"

    Queen Elizabeth (died 1603): "All my possessions for a moment of time!"

    Peter the Great (Czar of Russia on his deathbed): "I believe, Lord, and confess -- help my unbelief!"

    William Pitt (English Statesman, died 1778): "I have, like other men, neglected spiritual matters too much to have any ground of hope that can be efficacious on a death bed. I now throw myself on the mercy of God through the merits of Christ."

    Blessings!

    I guess Satan and God are like the Republicans and Democrats. They never really change the status quo because they share complete control and don't want to lose a good thing.

    I wasnt raised in a religion...was told that "God" was going to kill me in 3rd grade because I did not love him (boy came up to me asking if I loved God and I said NO because I didnt know what kid on the playground he was talking about)., but from what I know now is the Devil envied humans because God loved them. Why would the devil give them back to "the God" he felt so much hatred against. Everyone has the right to their own beliefs. You just asked the public their opinions.

    Satan has no control over heaven or hell. It is a just God that sends people to either hell or heaven. He will even send Satan there. Not a place Satan wants to be or controls.

    For one God is not of this world.

    -----------------------------

    << John 10:7 >>

    Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep.

    ----------------------------

    According to the gospel of John there is one who comes in his own image.

    John 7:7 (NKJV)

    The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil.

    John 8:40 to 47

    43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

    44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    .......................................…

    There is esoteric and exoteric parts of religion, one develops and protects the being, and the other develops business and deluded people in the said order.

    Words are mindful constructs of discovery/duality, and tools to develop and protect the being, they can also be expedients.

    Our actions determine how deep we bury our spirits beneath the sedge while walking against our consciences. (Where the blind lead the blind)

    ----------------------------------

    As far as hells concerned It was the sacrifice done through God who won mankind, and who went to hell to release Adam and co.

    However:

    Peter 5:8

    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

    You should suggest that to him, he probably just has not thought of it yet.
