Let's see what was it you left out of your quoted scripture there Will.
D&C 121 23 Wo unto all those that discomfort my people, and drive, and murder, and testify against them, saith the Lord of Hosts; a generation of vipers shall not escape the damnation of hell.
Whom exactly are the MY PEOPLE
of the Lord? Those who do as he commands and are visited of God and truly wrought upon and cleansed by the baptism of fire and of the Holy Ghost? Or those who invent another way? Hmmm? I have a track record of teaching the true gospel of forty years, to the utter consternation of the LDS Church. Please find ONE instance in recent LDS Church history were anybody besides me competently addressed this doctrine or even insisted that it is the ONLY doctrine of Christ.
Who then are the children of Christ? Those he receives and puts his name upon with power and the promised NEW HEART FROM GOD or those who invented an imperceptible means to flatter the people and placate them and make them dull of hearing and blind and unable to see.
The curse of God referred to above included the Almighty causing people to be blind to the truth. Whom then is already cursed of God. Hmm?
There's some meat on this bone:
12 And also that God hath set his hand and seal to change the times and seasons, and to blind their minds, that they may not understand his marvelous workings; that he may prove them also and take them in their own craftiness;
13 Also because their hearts are corrupted, and the things which they are willing to bring upon others, and love to have others suffer, may come upon themselves to the very uttermost;
14 That they may be disappointed also, and their hopes may be cut off;
15 And not many years hence, that they and their posterity shall be swept from under heaven, saith God, that not one of them is left to stand by the wall.
You reading this The Nehor? And that could just as well have read at the end "one of them is left that pisseth against the wall", Will.
2 Kings. 9
8 For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall,
