On your JSP put
<%@ page errorPage="/403.html" %>
In  your web app's web.xml file add  
    <error-page>
                <error-code>403</error-code>
                <location>/403.html</location>
    </error-page>

The file 403.html can contain
<htm>
           You cannot access this resource
</html>

There is one method which gets you the errorCode from response
You can use property fiel to match errorCode to your custom message
