comment What happened to Ananias and Sapphira after death?
I think you are correct, they were both believers, but they lied in the face of God and were both killed, so the question is what happened to them after they died, or rather: are their names still written in the Book of Life so that they will inherit life at the resurrection?

Peter said in Acts 5:7 (one of the quoted verse) “You have not lied just to human beings but to God.” In verse 9 he says (to the wife): “How could you conspire to test the Spirit of the Lord?” So they did lie to both the Church and the Holy Spirit.

comment Will (or “do”) people in heaven get to interact with Jesus, independent of massive crowds?
God is not limited by time (cf. 2 Pet 3:8). I don't think that God would let neither time nor space hinder him from spending "time" alone with his beloved in heaven. :)

comment Why did God create unnecessary creatures like wasps and flies?
I too have asked myself this question many times, especially those times when lying in bed, trying to sleep and I suddenly hear that annoying sound of a mosquito ...

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
@warren Interesting. In my Swedish translation, it seems that David says that Goliath has taunted the army of God. When reading it again, it is clear that the sentence can also be interpreted as though Goliath taunted God.

The Israelites were used as Gods tool for punishing the wicked surrounding people, which in turn were used to punish the Israelites when they turned from God.

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
It seems that I remembered it wrong. As you say, he defied the army of the Israelites, that is: he defied the army of the living God. One might say that he did this because he was not an Israelite, which would then be the reason but not the crime itself. In Deut. 18:10-11, God forbids the Israelites from doing things like sacrificing their children in fire and engaging in witchcraft. In verse 12 God says that it is because of these detestable practices that God drove out the Canaanites before the Israelites. Not just because they were not Israelites.

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
The Israelites were ordered to destroy the other tribes because of their countless crimes, not because they weren't Israelites. In multiple places throughout the Old Testament, God says that he does not rejoice over the death of the sinner, but wishes all to repent. The mission of the Israelites was to be the light and salt to all of mankind. So what did Goliath really do? He defied and cursed the Holy of Israel.
