KEY POINTS:

* The Jews believed that crucifying Jesus would cause him to be cursed of God and suffer
* There are people today who still refuse to hear that Jesus had to say and thus deny Him
* Jesus did not need salvation, He was salvation
* When we wear new clothes it signifies you are prospering
* When GOD wants your attention, be prepared for something major to occur
* Go boldly before the Father and repent for your sins
* We all need to gain our own relationship with Christ
* Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection you can go boldly before GOD and cultivate your own relationship with Him
* The spirit of the Lord is within you
“Now the Lord is that spirit; and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”
