“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:” Ephesians 4:11-12
The word of God is perfect. Until the rapture, these 5 offices will continue to function full on by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Some Christians are quick to dismiss the fact that we still have apostles like Paul, who have left all for the glory of God. They think so because they are unaware. Ignorance is dangerous no matter how knowledgeable you are. It’s safest to think you don’t know, and then when you ask God in prayer, He will lead you to such apostles.
We will not achieve perfection without Jesus, but His appointed ones will build us as they grow in revelation and power. The work of ministry is present continuous and will keep bearing fruits for the kingdom of God as grace abounds. All those who stay obedient, and diligently seek Jesus will continue to be edified and prepared for the day when He soon shall appear .
