Can it be said that in the end everyone and everything becomes part of the sun?
When sun swallows Earth some 7 billion years from now, then everyone and everything on Earth becomes part of Sun. Is that the ultimate end?

Yes, but - what does the Sun then become?

Well, I will have moved by then

I believe there's a swallow, and then the belch is the true end.

The Biblical record indicates that there will be a new haven and Earth.

Yes, it can be said. Anything can be said.
I suspect that before our Sun reaches its full red giant size, it would have vaporized the Earth and swept the vapor out of the solar system with solar winds.

In a sense, the sun will slowly expand enveloping the earth but by that point, everything will have long since been burned away.
By that time, humans would likely do a 'Noa's arc' thing to another habitable planet in the galaxy.

Yes that is true.
It will happen in about 5 billion years.
But not everyone will become part of the sun.
I plan to emigrate to Mars before that happens.

Yes, the sun will engulf the earth. But everything on earth, including us, came out of stars. Every atom of every element except hydrogen was made inside a star. So our atoms will be returning to where they began.

Well, assuming that there aren't some of us who haven't moved out to the outer parts of the solar system, or even further by that point in time. Even moving the Mars will prevent us from being swallowed by the Sun.

Heavens no. The big red giant that engulfs much of the solar system will eventually die out from the lack of fuel. Then what's left of the Sun will be a cold celestial body.
Had our Sun been roughly two to four times the size it is today, it would collapse as the red giant and become a super nova. But, alas, our Sun is too tiny for such a glorious ending. So it'll just become a cold rock.
