When you think of masters of the Mic in wrestling, you automatically think of Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson for telling another wrestler that he (The Rock) was that much better than anybody else. Except when The Rock spoke; he spoke in such a way that the fans listening would hang on his every word. Whether baby face which in the business means to be a good guy wrestler or heel which is your typical bad guy persona. He made the fans believe he was one of the two, all the time. Triple H once said “wrestlers tell stories with their bodies.”
The Rock was ahead of his time. Yes wrestling is entertainment and with the Rock on the Mic, you were always left entertained. This was a time when so few wrestlers had such unique verbal skills that could talk and back it up too. I can only count of five that I know of, Ted Dibase, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair and Chris Jericho. Personally I think The Rock and Chris Jericho had the art of being an enthusiastic, entertaining wrestler that weren’t your stereotypical muscle heads but their verbal battles were most electrifying. Personally I do feel that The Rock and Chris Jericho fed off one another’s energy. Therefore I the two combined would help introduce the world the era of Sports Entertainment in wrestling.
Currently Chris Jericho is a heel on WWE SMACKDOWN! Oddly enough it’s a show that The Rock used a paraphrase when talking about “Laying the Smack Down,” on his opponents. Chris Jericho makes a great heel whether he does read Webster’s Dictionary a week or not remains to be seen. His use of the high end English language leaves me almost astonished as what he actually is saying each week. Jericho’s use of the English language leaves him in a league of his own, and it reminds me of one of the most interesting traits that Jericho has that is to be a good wrestler, you have to develop a good character, and Chris Jericho has the certain character that leaves you without words in your response to his ramblings.
Just when you want to throw the pillow at the TV or scream at him to shut up, you still have to take a second to think of what words Jericho used to insult the audience. Before you get mad, and stream shoots out of your ears, remember this; Jericho talks as much as he does, for the most part is to involve the audience. Chris Jericho is a wrestler that is a dying breed that brings a certain amount of entertainment and skill to the table, that’s what makes wrestling so entertaining.

Before I begin , I would like to say that this devotional for me will be one from the heart. In other words this devotion has been placed on my heart. I write devotionals and to me its pretty simple of why I do them, to draw closer to Lord. But lately with the devotionals they have all managed to teach me a lesson or two. but on the other hand I feel like I'm doing what I don't want to do with God, which is get in and get out. in other write a devotional just for the sake of writing a devotional. Thats not how I want to do things for God. I want to write a devotional because they effect me and mean a great deal to me. So after hearing a sermon from John Hagee about what have you done for Jesus lately? Are you serving him, the way that glotifies him? With all the devotionals I have written. I took one look at the pastor and said openly and honesty NO! Not like I used too. So I started what makes me a servant of God. How do I really know I am connecting with him? Hagee did one very interesting thing, he pointed out that in the book of Romans Paul would introduce himself as a servant of Christ. Not out for himself. Peter would also introduce himself as a servant of Christ.So needless to say it got me thinking, about what I'm really doing with the devotionals and the real purpose behind them. The truth is it is my full intention to glorify God through these devotionals, how ever I feel as though doing them just don't bring me the same amount of joy as they once did. So what does that mean is this a crisis of faith, not by a long shot. It means something has to change, I can't just drive thru and except Jesus to show up whenever the time is good for me. When I say something has to change, I mean a total 360.
1. Devotional in the morning and at night.
2. Workout more during the day
3. Develope Fellowship with study groups
4. Read the word
5. Believe in the word
6. Pray, Pray. Pray!!!
7. Christian Music
In the name of Jesus I declare 2010 to be a new beginning , a fresh start, filled with great oppertunities and greater succuess. I will declare I now know what it is to be a servant of Christ. I myself can boldly say that because of these things, I am A servant of Christ.
1Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— 2the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures 3regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David,

While playing Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 I came to a realization, that everyone needs a new day.
Why is it a new day, because I came to the thought that I can be Shaken not Shattered.
Why am I confident? Because I need to put total faith in the word, the word of God. How do you have total faith you have to recconect with your original design. I learned that through reading Mathew Hagee's book "Shaken not Shattered."
As a person of faith, I must admit the world is an attractive place, but with the attraction comes the disconnect from God. Why honestly because I sometimes become too confident for my own good. Although God wants his children to lead happy lives, we as the children of God. Must turn our faces away from the things of the world and turn our faces and hearts over to God. A certain piece of scripture really speaks to me when it comes to wanting to recconecting with the Holy Spirit and the Lord our God.
1I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
7Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
8I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
9I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
10I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
11Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
12For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
13Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
14Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
17But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
Thanks for the "TRUE AWAKENING"
Revelation 21:4 (King James Version)
4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

I started to think today, what exactly is the perfect image of a perfect family? Certainly every family has there so called good days and bad, right?
I felt compeled by God to write this devotional today , because every once and a while a family that is close can get a little too close for comfort which may cause ripples in peaceful waters. I would call it "The Angry Family but I might just say that to make a point. Mostly everyone in my family is disappointed in that I dropped out of Conestoga College. Most of them don't understand why or how I could ever do such a thing. I did not drop out of college to make a disgrace and become an utter disappoint of myself. I did it because I wanted to chase a dream. A childhood dream. Most people have childhood dreams , but not alot of people follow through why? Because as people grow older, the ability to dream becomes sort of lost cause because of the matter of responsibile. But I want to make a point. Just becaise you have a dream doesn't mean you don't have responsibillity.
Hebrews 13:8 (King James Version)
8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

In a world where it says people are Christian more on their facebook profiles, my space and twitter pages than written on their hearts. The world seems to be walking around with a blindfold on. No that's not to offend anybody it's just to point out the obvious. This world has turned into more people chasing after the next big payout and than get it any cost, even to the point of burnout.
But when the burnout stage is reached, how does that make people happy? In fact I do believe that when people reach the burnout stage, they are not happy , in fact they are the complete opposite end of the spectrum, they are grumpy and usually want some rest. That is if they don't plug some Red Bull into them first.
But happens to Christians when they feel overwhelmed and burden? Do they cower and hide inside a shell. No they do the opposite. BE BOLD. I say this because a lot of Christians today are afraid of what they say and what the world might think, well Christians it is time for a wake up call. What does that mean? Simple it is written in the word of God that not to worry about what to say, because if your heart is one after God, than Jesus himself will speak through you and give you the words to say.
Than you say Anthony, it seems like everybody is against me , they make a million decisions, they always get mad at me. I say to you that's OK. Be Patient, Be Stead fast and be glued to the good book like you are to You-Tube. I want you remember two things. "Greater he who is you than who is the world. If God is for you than who can be against you?"
Now you may say that Anthony, I'm loosing control. I feel captive what do I do. STAND FIRM! How? Good question take a look at this video.
So whats your point, Anthony? My point is that with God NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
Look at this short video about the imprisonment of Paul and Silas.
Acts 16:20-26 (New International Version)
20They brought them before the magistrates and said, "These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar 21by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice."
22The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten. 23After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. 24Upon receiving such orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.
25About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose.

I watched the film, Journey to the center of the earth last night and it got me thinking of God. More specifically the things , we see and don't see. See Hollywood does an amazing job of showing viewers the various possibilities that do happen on scientific terms. I'm not a movie basher by any means. I think the movie was done beautifully not because it dealt with science but the constant message that human beings as we know are always so curious as to what's out there. For that I have a biblical response. In 2 Corinthians 4:18 as it is written; 2 Corinthians 4:18 (New International Version)
18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
First off, I want to thank God for allowing to have 100 devotionals. Thats quite a feat.
and because it is special the topic under discussion tonight is just that. SPECIAL!
Why? because its about science Darwin and whole lot of speculation with no real truth. Alot of people have questioned where we come from. It's the age old question, the reason why that is though is because we are a curious race with intellect. It is common for people to wonder where we come from.
The important thing to remember is not automatically just out the word of God. Because if you do, it has a way of coming back to you. Reaping what you sow persay.
Recently on Youtube, I watched a sagment from way of the master and Charles Darwin's book, the origin of spices.
Watch the Video and see what you think....
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that naturewill reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”- Galatians 6:7-8
The important thing to remember is that science is not correct, neither is religion. The only thing that is correct is the impact that God made for us.

Many people in my walk of life, would consider me to be at a crossroads, but they believe that because it is what they only see. The truth being that I have endured suffering and long standing torment. Only to hold steady to the word, especially when everyone would laugh at me. claiming that the word has false hope. Some people may say that me dropping out of Conestoga College was the worst thing I could ever do. Well let me tell you, I can tell you straight up, it was NOT the worst thing I have ever done. In fact it is the best thing that I had done, for the first time ever I have my head on straight and chasing a dream. Why was I so unhappy at Conestoga College, simple I was pleasing men and not honouring myself.
John 5:41-44 (New International Version)
41"I do not accept praise from men, 42but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts. 43I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. 44How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God[a]?
So why choose television broadcasting , because of Good 'Ol J.R. Jim Ross. I was truly inspired by Jim Ross and the reason why that is because of his passion that J.R. had when calling his wrestling matches.
This is why I choose to leave Conestoga College "Home of the Conestoga Condors and in September join Fanshawe College home of the Fanshawe Falcons.
