Is God Bottom Up or Top Down?
Throughout the Christian Bible, we have "commandments" like "judge not lest ye be judged." In the midst of all that, we have Michele Bachman, who claims right winged Christian status, and is quoted as saying:
"We need to cry out to a Holy God," Bachmann said on Jan Markell's "Understanding the Times" radio show. "This (end times) is coming faster than anyone can see."
Entice fear, Michele! In the meantime, let's explore "end times." The end of time means two things in spiritual experience. Yes, the "end times" is an epoch in history, such as reflected in the turn over from hunting / gathering and nomadic herdsmen cultures into agriculture. This movement in time ultimately became our modern factories and service industries.
The end of time is also a state of being, associated with the virgin birth, deep sleep and death. This experience is often associated with being beyond time and space.
It is also referred to as the Eternal Now.
As described in Genesis 1:2:
And the Earth (matter) was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
This statement is about the ground to my writing and your reading this article. It is NOT a point in history. It is NOW! When this article goes into the reader's memory, it goes back into an "Unmanifest Order" (the Deep) until some circumstance inseminates the memory into unfolding once again.
