The exchange between Alan Rudrum , Stephen Fallon, and others 
suggests that Milton has deliberately left this issue open by 
balancing ambiguous formulations against each other. One 
interpretation of the Father's decree would be  that he will withhold 
from disobedient angels the prevenient grace without which they 
cannot seriously entertain repentance. But if they could, I suppose 
he would accept it.
