Ah, OK!

So you want to make a clipping mask.

If the text is already outlined, make sure it's a compound path. Then put on top of the line, select both and Object > Clipping mask > Make.

Then select the path of the mask with the direct selection tool and apply the stroke.

Overlapping like the crossed with a red X for example in letter O. I only want the line through text not over it, sorry if i used a wrong term.

As far as I understand the request, the desired result is a line across the entire word that should not appear on (or behind) the counters and between the single characters.

 

If that assumption is true, I'd recommend to draw a line below the type object, align as desired, select both and then make a clipping mask. After that you may have to direct select the type object again and give it a stroke or fill attribute.
