Control and manipulation of others is witchcraft. Control and manipulation to make people obey you, in God's name, is not from the Spirit. Quite the opposite. Trust the Lord is doing his work in others, and pray God's will be done in their lives - not your will. Every single person can be lead by the Spirit and have direct access to the father without any mediator, according to the NT. Jesus is our high priest and mediator. He was the end of the OT temple worship, by being The high priest, The temple, and The perfect Lamb that was sacrificed. No human beings, buildings, entity or deeds, can replace that. We either choose Jesus, or Christian (or other) religion. But the NT says that we are under the curse if we trust our own righteousness instead of Jesus'. No human being is perfect, except from the second Adam, the son of God. The only perfect man.
