I'm Locked Out of Heaven?
If you listen to contemporary music on the radio, then you might be familiar with the Bruno Mars song, "Locked Out of Heaven" or the Swedish House Mafia song, "Don't You Worry Child [Heaven's Got a Plan for You]"
Both of these songs might appeal to your spiritual side because they mention Heaven, but they are both theologically wrong. Sorry to burst your spiritual bubble.
No one is locked out of Heaven
Everyone has a chance to hear the gospel and respond to it. If you choose to not believe, then you choose the consequences -- which is not going to Heaven.
- Romans 6:23 says: "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
- Romans 10:10: "For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
Swedish House Mafia's song, "Don't You Worry Child" lyrics say: "Heaven's got a plan for you..." Heaven is a place created by God for those who choose to follow God.
God actually has the plan for your life. Heaven is only a place, and is not a being that has plans for your life.
Why Will Heaven Be Destroyed?
In Revelation 21:1, John says: "Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea."
Why was the first Heaven and the first Earth destroyed?
The answer is one and the same, and I've already given you a hint above. Romans 6:23 says: "For the wages of sin is death..."
Both Heaven Earth have been soiled by sin, which is rebellion against God. When God has sorted out the evil doers from the righteous, He will create a New Heaven and a New Earth that have not been tarnished by sin.

The Rider on a White Horse
A Castle Above the Kingdom is Like Heaven & Earth
Heaven is a very real place.
God created it for those that love Him. Not everyone goes to Heaven.
Only those that call upon Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be able to go.
Sin is Satan's way of keeping people out of Heaven. His plan is quite effective. Satan is the "Father of all Lies." He loves evolutionists that push his agenda. As we know from history, Adolf Hitler was one of the biggest proponents of evolution, killing millions and citing that they were not evolved enough. Sad, but true.
You don't have to buy into the lies.
As long as you have breath in your body, you can get right with God by repenting of your sins, and committing your life to Him.
Jesus Returns Triumphantly
Before Heaven is Destroyed...
Revelation 19:11-16 says that Heaven will open up and out comes the Rider on a White Horse, called Faithful and True, and has a name written on Him that no one knows, but Himself. This rider is Jesus and no one can take his true name in vain. It is reserved for his faithful...for those who go to Heave to worship Him forever.
Jesus Christ Will Rule the Earth
As you already know, Jesus has not come back yet. Satan currently rules over the Earth as the "Prince of the Power of the Air." (Ephesians 2:2)
This is only a temporary rule for Satan. He will be bound for a thousand years when Jesus judges him. After that, he will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.
During this period of a thousand years, Jesus will rule over all of the Earth as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in what is called the "Millennial Reign." (The scriptures below are interpreted with a literal meaning)
