The 12 apostles of the Lord

Our stand out event of the day was our extra large class tonight.  We normally get 6 to 8 but tonight we had 14.  I hope the class continues to grow.  There was such a nice feeling there.  We love teaching our students.  We had another busy day at the Barlow.  There are so many little things that need to be decided on as they are remodeling.  One thing we talked about tonight was the calling of the 12 apostles.  We are pointing out that our apostles today also have the same authority and the same commission from the Lord.  The Book of Mormon brings out an interesting principle.  When the angel is teaching Nephi about the dream his father had he makes this point.

 35 And the multitude of the earth was gathered together; and I beheld that they were in a large and spacious building, like unto the building which my father saw. And the angel of the Lord spake unto me again, saying: Behold the world and the wisdom thereof; yea, behold the house of Israel hath gathered together to fight against the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
a) Who is in the great and spacious building?  Who is pointing fingers and making fun of those on the straight and narrow path?  The house of Israel.
b) Who are they fighting against? The 12 apostles of the Lord
c) What are they using to fight with?  The wisdom of the world.  
 36 And it came to pass that I saw and bear record, that the great and spacious building was the pride of the world; and it fell, and the fall thereof was exceedingly great. And the angel of the Lord spake unto me again, saying: Thus shall be the destruction of all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people, that shall fight against the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
What happens to those that fight against the 12 apostles?
