To me, it is perfectly obvious what the OP is trying to accomplish:
perform the encryption by supplying the cryptographic key itself,
instead of character string material, from which the key will be
derived by some in-program procedure.

Why does he want to do that makes no difference to the answer,
which is simply: no, unfortunately you can't.
