Adam and Eve were warned that the moment that they became intimate with Satan, they would surely die. That is how the "strong man" entered time. The Word states that Christ Jesus came into time legally via a woman, to destroy death, which is Satan. The word dead is mention in Gen.20:3, "Thou art but a dead man". Christ mentions the word dead in Matt.8:22, and Luke 9:6, "Let the dead bury their dead". Dead = lacking life, separation, departure, cessation, completion. It can be both physical, as well as spiritual. When ministers state that we are no longer under the Law, this is it. Because the penalty for breaking the Law in the Garden, was satisfied on the Cross. Christ is the "Bridge" between the Father and man. Christ Jesus dealt with both types and in Rev.1:8 and in other Gospels shows that He has been there, and defeated Satan. If lost, confused, deceived, or dead - seek Christ Jesus. Seek Him while He may be found. No man, Nobody, No how gets to the Father, except they go through Christ [Jn.14:6]; No exceptions.
