Is the Office of Apostle Alive Today?

There's a lot of talk about whether or not the office of apostle is still alive and well today. There are those who say that the office is closed, and I would say I agree. But others like Fred K C Price and those in the New Apostolic Reformation and groups aligned with them (International House of Prayer and Prayer Furnace groups) would disagree, saying that the office is alive today.

And let's not forget the mainstream Charismatic groups, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (Mormons). Official Mormon doctrine attests that there are alway 12 living apostles. Doctrinally speaking, the aforementioned New Apostolic Reformation is entirely based upon the idea of modern day apostles and carrying the mantel of apostolic authority.
