Even though Satan and all his angels are not in their final place of torment, they are suffering from the penalties of their sins today.

James 4:7.. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Fleeing refers to "fear!! Fear has torment!

James 2:19.. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Someone who trembles is also suffering from "fear" which is torment.

1John 4:18.. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Suppressing the truth is all the devil can do by keeping people in darkness. The light of the Gospel dispels the darkness. No amount of darkness can over power light. For light has shined in darkness, but the darkness could not lay hold upon it.

2Co 4:4.. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
