Too many of God's churches are in chaos because there is no order/apostolic government. Apostles still exist and can be proven in scripture and reality. Apostles were set by the Lord Jesus Christ to overseer, direct, instruct and set order/laws for the Church. The Book of Acts follow this principle. Preachers are running wild in the churches due to the lack of an apostle over them. We as saints must learn and accept things God's way. Apostles and prophets are the foundation of churches and without them spiritual immorality will continue to corrupt those in involved. If you have any questions then please feel free to ask me. The Apostle Jesus has ordained me a First Level (Senior) apostle. Praise God! I have by the mercy of God been preaching for thirty (30) years.
To help you understand about apostles please read the following scriptures: Acts, chapters 1-4, 1 Corinthians, chapters 6-9 and 12, Epesians, chapters 2-4 and Hebrewss, chapters 3-5.

Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord.
When Paul was challenged over his apostleship, as recorded in that 9th chapter of 1 Corinthians, he appealed to what the Corinthian church already knew of his ministry... "if to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you." As he would assert later, the signs of a true apostle were performed in the presence of the Corinthians: he had manifested "signs and wonders and miracles" [2 Cor. 12:12]. Can you authenticate your apostolic credentials as Paul authenticated his own?
Apostles must be true and bold apostles. Apostles should receive training from another seasoned apostle. Order must come into all of Christ's Churches. Holiness, perfection and the the Apostles' Doctrine must be taught and practiced in God's Churches. Apostles are only called by the High Apostle, Lord Jesus Christ.
Finally, females are not called into the apostleship.!!!
"...Apostles should receive training from another seasoned apostle..."
Is it necessary that one receive TRAINING from an apostle to be an apostle?
I am not sure Paul had any training from the apostles.
Paul's testimony does not back up your assertion that he was trained by the apostles.
But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to Damascus.
Then three years later I went up to Jerusalem to become acquainted with Cephas, and stayed with him fifteen days. But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord's brother. (Now in what I am writing to you, I assure you before God that I am not lying.) Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. I was still unknown by sight to the churches of Judea which were in Christ; but only, they kept hearing, "He who once persecuted us is now preaching the faith which he once tried to destroy." And they were glorifying God because of me.
