G-d DMs Abram
Try to put this in perspective, you are the son of an idol maker and grew up in a nasty city where every perversion, even some that have been lost in the antiquities and only now are being re-discovered on sites like 4chan.
Abram did not thrive as salesboy in daddy's idol shop, but he loved the outdoors and was a going concern with livestock and how. At this point the entourage was over 50 including all the family and servants and the sheep, goat and camel count was over a thousand. And he had his trophy wife, Sarai, top stock arm candy.
One day, Abram was reading his email, and puzzling over a message touting 'Cinco de Mayo intro of NY's 1st kosher tequila: 11 am, 1214 Vanderbilt Avenue, nr Grand Central' with pastrami burritos. When IT happened! God DM'd Abram!
One thing really set Abram apart from every other man walking the earth, he knew God's voice the second he heard it, he did not question or doubt, he did what he was told to do.
Then the LORD told Abram, "Leave your country, your relatives, and your father's house.
Go to the land that I will show you.
I will cause you to become the father of a great nation.
I will bless you and make you famous.
I will make you a blessing to others.
I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you.
