We are living in a time when, perhaps more than any other in history, it is important to discern the times in which we live. God is currently restoring the ministry of Apostle within the local Church. The apostolic ministry has been set in the Church to oversee and release all believers into their callings and destinies. Apostles are a gift to the Church from Jesus Christ Himself.
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NIV) So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.
1 Corinthians 12:28 (NIV) And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues.
