When That Which Is Perfect Is Come 1 Corinthians 13:10

I have previously stated that some believe that the Holy Spirit stopped giving gifts when John the Beloved died after writing the book of Revelation. I have also heard that there are no Prophets or Apostles today, either. Why?  If they were essential in the days of the New Testament, why in this world would we not need them today?

Jesus Himself said in Mar 16:16-18 

(16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
(17) And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
(18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 13:8-10

(8)Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
(9) For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
(10) But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

“When that which is perfect is come.”  Just when is that, though?

I have heard that it is when this age is completed.  Others say that it is when Jesus returns for His Bride.  Either way you want to say it,  it means the same thing:  The Holy Spirit is going to be functioning on Earth now just as He was in the Bible days, and will continue to do so until the Rapture.  

All I know is that I believe and His Word never fails!
