This is the problem with a doctrine that you are creating. Quoting Jonah I cried out from the depths of sheol. Is a man able to repent and be saved after he is dead and in hell?
The Catechism of the RCC says Jesus descended into Hell.
Even though they also teach that the Jonah story means , when speaking of the belly of the whale, that Jonah actually died and descended into Sheol.
"...In Jonah 2:2 we read:
2: "And he said, "I called out of my distress to the Lord, and he answered me. I cried for help from THE BELLY OF SHEOL. You heard my voice."
The reason why so many people fail to see the context of what REALLY happened is because they see the word "BELLY" and think that is the whole story. They do not understand that Jonah was dead, and that he called out from SHEOL
After you see that Jonah was dead in the belly of the whale, and that his soul had departed from his body and went to the place of the dead, the whale went up and vomited Jonah onto the beach. Then, a LITERAL resurrection of Jonah took place. "
