I will be gone one day.
I will go to heaven one day.

What's the difference between two sentences?

They say two different things.

The second tells us where you are going to; the first doesn't.

Like this:

1. I will be leaving in an hour.

2. I will leave for Beijing in an hour.

According to your messages,

1. I will do it, but not now, just talking.
2. I'm doing it as I said.

Is it correct?

I will be gone one day can mean "someday I will die". This is true whether or not you are diagnosed with cancer.

Heaven is a name for the afterlife that some people believe comes after death.

Always capitalize the word I.
