The issue isn't where you get to live for eternity but where God gets to live for eternity. You might escape damnation and that is grand, but God's purpose for Himself is much better. You are His Temple, a temple not made by human hands but one that is constructed, beginning with the cornerstone Jesus, and thereafter all His children (those who trust Him).
Yes, God has a new residence. Who is God? God is Love. Love has a new residence. In you, He takes command and accomplishes what He desires through reconciliation and fire. Everything in Biblical History points to heaven coming to this earth. You are part of that earth. You are His new residence.
