Do all good persons go to heaven?

Acts 2:34 specifically mentions one good person that did not go to heaven:

"David [whom the Bible refers to as being `a man agreeable to Jehovah's heart'] did not ascend to the heavens."

Though the Bible does show that only 144,000 will be "bought from the earth" and have the hope of heavenly life (Rev. 14:1-3), the Bible also shows that God's original purpose was for mankind to live on earth. (Ge 2:17)

Ps. 115:16 says: "The heavens are the Lord's heavens, but the earth he has given to human beings." (NRS)

"God created the heavens and earth and put everything in place. He made the world to be lived in, not to be a place of empty chaos." (Isa, 45:18) NLT

After death, Acts 24:15 says that "there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Then, God "will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Rev. 21:4) NWT
