Meant to live forever
At the beginning of human history, God revealed that man was made, not to live a few years and then die, but to live forever. God put the first human couple in an earthly paradise. And they were instructed to be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it. God’s purpose was to have, in the course of time, the entire earth inhabited by a righteous human family living together in peace and happiness. – Isaiah 45:18.
Although a death sentence was imposed on Adam because of his disobedience, God’s original purpose for humans to live forever in Paradise on earth did not change. God showed that his purpose had not changed regarding the earth when he said: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” – Psalms 37:29.
As our Creator, God is in a position to correct the defect that causes humans to grow old and die. Since that defect was inherited from the first man, Adam, God has provided as a ransom sacrifice the perfect human life of his Son, Jesus Christ, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. – John 3:16.
Jesus Christ thus replaces the original Adam as our father, or life-giver. That is why in the Bible Jesus is called the last Adam. So instead of being condemned to die as children of the sinner Adam, obedient humans may be reckoned worthy to receive everlasting life as children of their “Eternal Father” Jesus Christ.
The King of eternity and the Father our Lord Jesus Christ is Jehovah God. Under the rule of Jesus Christ, the earthly Paradise that was lost will be regained. Millions will benefit from the righteous rule by enjoying life on earth in Paradise. Included among them will be the criminal who died alongside Jesus and to whom Jesus promised: “You will be with me in Paradise.”

Even the unrighteous dead will be resurrected and will be provided opportunity to qualify for everlasting life on earth. The Bible describes the elimination of sickness, aging and death, saying: “God himself will be with them. And he 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.” Revelations 21:3,4.

RE: Meant to live forever
Creation runs on life and death principles. You can't have one without the other. Heaven is a different place and a different story altogether but while we're in these bodies dealing with physical forces of existence then there has to be life and death struggles because that's the way the machinery of Creation works. No creation without destruction.
