Jaxthebeast is an unknown quantity at this point
Obedience training?

So my boy Jax is now about 10 months old and listens very well. But has started to rebel. It take 4 or 5 times of saying sit before he will sit. And he won't just sit he walks backward looking at me or goes to his ottoman and leans on it. Also have him laying down rolling over I can even get him to sit and stay when throwing his toys. He will stay till I tell him to get it. No problems with other animals so far. he will ignore other yapping dogs. So I really have NO PROBLEMS with him at all.

But when I start with his "training" he will jump the gun on commands. Like I say sit he will sit but when I say down. He thinks it's time to roll also. How do I get him to listen to what im telling him and not try to anticipate the next command?

Any thoughts or ideas on how to break him off this anticipation?

The key is to not teach a new command until he knows the other command 9 out of 10 times. Then once he knows the command do not give the command more than once. I use hand gestures first and incorporate the words after the fact. Once they know the command don't keep repeating it. Give them time to do what was asked. Then start on teaching another command until they know that one 9 out of 10 times. Don't get into a pattern asking the same commands on the same order. Switch it up. You're pups also in a rebellious stage so you have to factor that in. Teenage years and all that stick at it they will get it

Yeah, stop doing the same sequence of actions (down after sit, etc). Does he know how to come when he's called? Does he know how to heel? How about a standing stay? (Very useful for drying paws, putting on coats, etc.) Mix your training up: sit, come, stand, down, heel, sit, heel with frequent changes of direction, changes in speed, etc. If you don't know how to teach him to heel or stand, go to a good obedience class (look for one that uses positive training, rather than jerking the dog around or going to e-collars right off the bat). Teach him to 'watch me' (you say 'watch me' and he looks at your face/eyes). Work on self-control (aka, doggie zen: to get the cookie, you must leave the cookie); you can google 'watch me' and 'doggie zen' on the internet.
Does he know any tricks? I taught my parents' english cocker to jump through my arms or over an arm, to roll over, to play dead when I made a finger gun and said, 'bang' (she'd also play dead for a 'silencer'), taught her to crawl and walk backwards. Riley will shake hands with a bit of a twist, he'll slap my left hand, my right hand (changing paws) then I'll turn my back, put a hand out behind, say, 'gimme some skin', and he'll slap that one. He'll also walk backwards up the stairs, and sit 'pretty'.
Bottom line, keep him busy, keep him guessing, keep it short, keep it fun.
