What happens to everyone that gets resurected, do they go to heaven?

According to the Scriptures, the vast majority of the dead will be brought back to life on earth. (Psalm 37:29; Matthew 6:10) Describing his breathtaking vision of resurrected ones, the apostle John wrote: “The sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. And death and Hades were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:11-14) Those in Hades, or Sheol—mankind’s common grave—are in God’s memory. Every single one of them will be released from the grip of death. (Psalm 16:10; Acts 2:31) And each one will be judged according to the deeds he performs after he is resurrected. What will then happen to death and Hades? They will be hurled into “the lake of fire.” This means that the death that humans inherited from Adam will no longer affect them.
Just think of the happy prospect that the promise of the resurrection opens up for those who have lost a loved one in death! When Jesus resurrected the only son of the widow of Nain, what joy she must have experienced! (Luke 7:11-17) And concerning the parents of a 12-year-old girl whom Jesus brought back to life, the Bible says: “At once they were beside themselves with great ecstasy.” (Mark 5:21-24, 35-42; Luke 8:40-42, 49-56) In God’s promised new world, it will be a delight to welcome back loved ones.
What impact can knowing the truth about the resurrection have on us now? “Most people fear death and try to avoid thinking about it,” says The World Book Encyclopedia. Why? Because to most people, death is a mystery—something unknown to be feared. Knowing the truth about the condition of the dead and having the resurrection hope can impart courage to us if we come face-to-face with “the last enemy, death.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) This knowledge also makes it easier to bear the pain that we experience when losing a close friend or a relative in death.
When will the earthly resurrection begin? The earth today is filled with violence, strife, bloodshed, and pollution. If the dead were to come back to life on such an earth, surely any happiness would be short-lived. However, the Creator has promised that he will soon bring an end to the present world under Satan’s control. (Proverbs 2:21, 22; Daniel 2:44; 1 John 5:19) God’s purpose for the earth is about to be fulfilled. Then, in the peaceful new world of God’s making, billions who are now asleep in death will open their eyes.

No, they stay here on Earth, at least until they have a chance to hear the TRUTH. After that what they get is determined by a judgement.
(John 5:28, 29) 28 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.Source(s): 77 years of common sense, 67 years of research and 52 years of Bible study and 42 years as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. I don’t make any snap decisions.

There will be TWO Resurrections -
The FIRST is when Jesus returns (at His Second Coming) to take all His faithful followers back to heaven with Him for 1000 years.
The Second (or resurrection of the damned) happens after the 1000 years (above) when everyone else is resurrected, Satan is loosed for a little season where he tries to organise another war (Some say this will be Armageddon) wher he tries ti take the Holy City (and fails yet again) then God throws them all into the Lake of Fire - this is the Second Death.

Here is an article that I think you'll enjoy. It's all bible based and backs up the resurrection hope with scriptures and clear evidence. There's a resurrection hope for people to go to heaven and for people to live forever on the earth.

Depends when if its at the time called the "Rapture" then no. You get given a new body that never grows old. Jesus returns to the earth and defeats the Anti-Christ's world army.All Christians return also with Jesus to be with Him for 1000 years on the earth

There are TWO resurrections. The resurrection of the believers to life eternal. And the resurrection of the damned to eternal suffering.

At the final resurrection, the quick and the dead will be judged. Why the terms 'quick' and 'dead'? It's because death is an incubator. A soul will either rot and die (the dead) or be preserved by righteousness (the quick). This makes it easy to see that we condemn and save ourselves by the molding of our biophotons via our subconscience. So, it's not like a wicked dictator will judge those who were good. It's the physics of the metaphysical that will either bring decay or bring preservation. After all, Jesus revealed it when he spoke this parable, "I am the way, the light and the life." That's evidence that he wasn't human, but a representative of the biophoton light. Simply replace the word 'Lord' with he word that means light, life and the way.

No, resurrection doesn't exist and heaven doesn't exist either.
Its like people just throw away their points by asking all these stupid, noneducational questions.

There is no evidence for Resurrection or a heaven.
