ephesians 4:11 mentions apostles, prophets, evangelists… my question: where are the prophets today?

Christians have always understood that at the close of the apostolic age—with the death of the last surviving apostle, John, perhaps around A.D. 100—public revelation ceased. The *Catholic Encyclopedia * explains, “during the Apostolic times, God continues to select certain instruments like unto the Prophets of the Old Law to make known His will in an extraordinary manner and to foretell coming events”.
