And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

12:7 appeared. This is the first mention of an actual “appearance” of God to men (that is, a theophany, a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ). Note that God’s promise to give Abram the land of Canaan was unconditional. Abram had already met the only condition; that of leaving his homeland to go to Canaan as God commanded him.
