In the DV Universe, God did not show at the Final Battle, and the upper Heavens were closed off from the rest of Creation.
One of the side effects of this is, when humans die in the DV universe, they go to Hell. PERIOD. No escape. At least for the moment, Hell is running the show, and he who controls the Granite Throne controls the souls.
Remember, Hell rules the Earth, the Marches except for the area near Lucifer's Lighthouse, and the First Level of Heaven except the area between Gabriel's home and Lucifer's. Upper heaven is closed off, so souls cannot escape that way. All avenues of escape for souls are closed, and those who work to avoid Hell's minions are hunted down by Saminga's press gangs. (And when they press you, the juice comes out.)
The only exceptions to this would be the pagan gods gathering chosen souls into the Far Marches (and they cannot afford to do this often), or souls atheistic or nihlistic enough to discorporate... and after the proof of Armageddeon and the demonic horrors running wild on the Earth, there are very few atheists remaining...
The demons remaining in Hell seek to complete the destruction of the Universe. The angels and 'neo-angels' seek to preserve Creation and reopen the higher Heavens, presumably by persuading God to forgive Celestials their folly.
It should be noted that Lucifer did not actually fight during the battle of Armageddeon, but directed his forces through Baal, Asmodeus, Kronos and Saminga.
