Eventually, when it runs out of fuel. It will expand about three times in size and then implode upon itself.

No, but it'll IMPLODE, it'll expand into a red giant and cook the inner planets, then it'll implode into a white dwarf.

It hasn't exploded for Billions and Billions of years. So it won't happened anytime soon.

The future is unknown, but it is thought that the sun will expand to a huge "red giant", engulfing the three inner planets, some 5 billion years in the future, and burn another nuclear fuel instead of what it has now. Eventually, when that is gone, it will shrink to a white dwarf, much smaller than it is today.

Eventually it is predicted to, however it will not happen until hundreds of generations from now. You will be long gone.
