The tithe was before the law, was included under the law, and continued in the law of love, the New Covenant.
The tithe belongs to God and is seen by Him to be Holy. To not tithe is considered to be stealing from God and is one of the most disrespectful things a person can do. To not tithe is to be separated from God’s covanental grace and live under a curse.
The person who tithes honors God, walks in covenant with Him, and comes under the protection of God and His angels. He takes a stand against the devouerer and defends the tither against loss.
The tither lives under an open heaven and is a recipient of the benefits of God’s favor and blessing.
