Ephesians 5:14 New International Version (NIV) 14 This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Matthew 9:24 he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. The dead will rise and face judgement the dead will face eternity in hell. Our physical understanding of death is not the same as spiritual death. Could not spiritual death be just being asleep needing to be waken up by Spirit and life which is Christ word of course when it wakes them up they need to listen and learn eat spiritual food to live. A corpse can't suffer eternal punishment. We need to eat to live physically and God does not force us to do that.
