  gpg -e -f FILE_WITH_KEY 

or -F for hidden recipient.

   --recipient-file file
   -f   This option is similar to --recipient except that it encrypts to
        a key stored in the given file.  file must be the name of
        a file containing exactly one key.  gpg assumes that the
        key in this file is fully valid.

Requires at least 2.1.14
