What sense would it make for some of the demons to be locked up and some not? Is God planning on forgiving some of them later on? (Jude 1:6)?

I think this scripture just means he stopped them from meterialing into human beings until the day of judgment comes. What sayeth ye?

    Jude writes of “the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place.” (Jude 6) Angels had the power to materialize in human form, and some angels did so to bring messages from God. (Ge 18:1, 2, 8, 20-22; 19:1-11; Jos 5:13-15) But heaven is the proper abode of spirit persons, and the angels there have positions of service under God. (Da 7:9, 10) To leave this abode to dwell on earth and to forsake their assigned service to have fleshly relations would be rebellion against God’s laws, and perversion.

    The Bible states that the disobedient angels are now “spirits in prison,” having been ‘thrown into Tartarus’ and “reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.”God has restricted the disobedient angels in “eternal bonds under dense darkness.” (Jude 6) They are also said to be delivered into “pits of dense darkness.” (2Pe 2:4) Scriptural evidence shows that they are not denied all freedom of movement, inasmuch as they have been able to get possession of humans and even had access to the heavens until they were cast out by Michael and his angels and hurled down to the earth. (Mr 1:32; Re 12:7-9)

    Satan the Devil is to be bound with a great chain by the angel having the key of the abyss and hurled into the abyss. (Re 20:1-3) Since angels are not creatures of flesh and blood, this chain undoubtedly has reference to some binding force of which we have no knowledge. This seems to indicate that they are greatly restricted, unable again to materialize as they did prior to the Flood.—1Pe 3:19; 2Pe 2:4; Jude 6. (CB/Bible/JW.org)

    Jude 6 does not refer to all angels being demons. Only those angels that copped out and followed Lucifer will be bound in everlasting chains under darkness. Those angels became demons.

    The legend says that back in the time of Noah when the sons of God rebelled and came down to earth and married the sons of men some of the Angels returned to God and repented they told God they were sorry that they had done what was wrong and God placed those angels in a place of punishment which is described in The Book of Enoch it is a fierce punishment. But one which will end upon the day that Jesus Christ returns.

    The other angels that did not repent God cast them out of Heaven to the Earth and severely limited their power. These angels are destined to be totally destroyed. They showed no remorse and they went with Satan the devil and to this day continues to work with him.

    Now granted having to live upon a prison planet that had seven suns and is blazing hot for 5,000 years. But then being released with time served is far better then Eternal destruction.

    A person can battle the devil and his demons using the rosary and fasting.

    Most of the demons are running loose. However, there are some demons who have been locked up in chains in the bottomless pit. And there they remain.

    Why are some of them locked in chains? Because they crossed the line. God has put limitations as to what demons are allowed to do. And those demons crossed that line. And now God locked them up.

    How many demons are locked up in chains? We don't know the number, and the bible does not say. Are all these demons locked up for the same offense? We don't know. The bible does not list each and every infraction. But we do know about the big infraction. The big infraction that resulted in a worldwide flood. Those were the demons listed in Genesis 6. They crossed the line.

    Interestingly enough, apparently during the 7-year tribulation, God is going to UNLOCK those chains, and those demons are going to be let loose to torment humans who are living on the earth during that 7-year tribulation period. I don't even want to think about that. (Nasty.) So the worst of the worst demons will be allowed to make your life as miserable as possible. Yes, the 7-year tribulation period is a time of judgment on this earth.

    Fortunately, I won't be here. (Remember the rapture comes before the tribulation.)

    they will all be destr(Ezekiel 28:13-16) 13 You were in Eʹden, the garden of God. You were adorned with every precious stone —Ruby, topaz, and jasper; chrysʹo·lite, onyx, and jade; sapphire, turquoise, and emerald; And their settings and mountings were made of gold. They were prepared on the day you were created. 14 I assigned you as the anointed covering cherub. You were on the holy mountain of God, and you walked about among fiery stones. 15 You were faultless in your ways from the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you. 16 Because of your abundant trade, You became filled with violence, and you began to sin. So I will cast you out as profane from the mountain of God and destroy you, O covering cherub, away from the stones of fire.

    oyed in the end.

    None at all, which is about as much sense as Christianity makes in general.

    Many works of fiction require the suspension of disbelief for the reader to make it to the last chapter. You shouldn't expect the Bible to make any sense.
