Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Matthew 5:25 (b) The adversary in this portion evidently refers to GOD who sends His porter, death, to take men from this scene to the Judge, the Lord JESUS. Being found guilty, the Lord JESUS hands this wicked sinner over to one of His angels who is the officer. The angel takes the lost sinner to hell, which is GOD's prison house. Since the prisoner can never pay the debt he must remain there forever.
1 Timothy 5:14 (b) The adversary in this passage refers to critics of GOD's people who in their opposition to CHRIST are quick to find fault with GOD's people, and to call attention to the failures of Christians.
