Jews keep OT Sabbath FOR EVER, but the Church is free from the shadows. I work 7 days per week.

AMPLIFIED BIBLE (all verses).
Exodus 31;16 Wherefore the Israelites shall keep the Sabbath to observe it throughout their generations, a perpetual covenant.
17 It is a sign between Me and the Israelites forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and earth, and on the seventh day He ceased and was refreshed.
Colossians 2;16 Therefore let no one sit in judgment on you in matters of food and drink, or with regard to a feast day or a New Moon or a Sabbath.
17 Such [things] are only the shadow of things that are to come, and they have only a symbolic value. But the reality (the substance, the solid fact of what is foreshadowed, the body of it) belongs to Christ.

How can the Sabbath be for ever, but Paul said that we NT saints dont have to keep the OT Sabbath rest?
Paul was sent to the gentiles,,,,,,,Peter was sent to the Jews. (Gal 2;8). In Colossians 2;16, Paul was speaking to the Christian Church (the Church at Colosse).
In NT times, any Jew or gentile can become a Christian, and they are free from the Mosaic law and OT Sabbath-keeping. Peter (a Jewish Christian) lived as a gentile Christian, and ate with gentile Christians. But Christ will stop adding people to the Christian Church at the Rapture. The Jews (and gentiles) who are converted to Christ after the rapture will not be part of the Church. Those post-rapture-Jewish-Christians will keep the Sabbath forever, and will serve Christ in the Promised Land for ever. The meek shall inherit the earth for ever. A new heaven and a new earth.
All Jews and gentiles who survive the Trib and convert to Christ before the Second Coming, will enter the Millennial Reign as mortal Christians. They will have babies and grandbabies, who will choose to be believers or unbelievers. At the end of the Millennial Reign, these unbelievers will revolt against Christ and Christ will destroy them. Then we enter the EIGHTH DAY (a timeless eternity, a never-ending sinless day).
The gentiles who convert to Christ after the rapture will populate the earth (the gentile nations) after the Second Coming. Christ will bring the Church-saints with Him at the Second Coming. …………Jude 1:14 It was of these people, moreover, that Enoch in the seventh [generation] from Adam prophesied when he said, Behold, the Lord comes with His myriads of holy ones (ten thousands of His saints).
When Christ Returns, He will destroy all unbelievers with the brightness of His Coming………..Isaiah 13:9 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming!—fierce, with wrath and raging anger—to make the land and the [whole] earth a desolation and to destroy out of it its sinners.
God’s punishment on Judah, all the nations, and babylon were a foreshadow of the endtimes Wrath of God on the wicked…….Jeremiah 25:30 Therefore prophesy against them all these words and say to them: The Lord shall roar from on high and utter His voice from His holy habitation; He shall roar mightily against His fold and pasture. He shall give a shout like those who tread grapes [in the winepress, but His shout will be] against all the inhabitants of the earth.
We NT saints (the Church) will be immortal in the Millennial Reign, in our resurrection bodies (not male nor female), and we will rule the earth. You will rule 10 cities, another will rule 5 cities, another will rule 1 city.
PRAISE CHRIST!
