Is there any difference between these two phrases?

1. Time demands
2. Demands of the time

Thank you in advance

"Time demands", reffers to that you are short on time, with little time left to do something.

Such as " We have little time left! This time demands that we need to get done soon."

While "Demands of the time", reffers to an 'age', or period of time, in which things are different than they used to be, so certain demands are placed.

Such as "This draught is ruining our water supplies. The damands of this time require us to conserve as much water as we can."
