I am trying to search for other instances in the text that duplicate the construction of the iva clause in John 3:16 with a prohibitive subjunctive μὴ ἀπόληται  and a present active subjunctive ἔχῃ .  

ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς αὐτὸν μὴ ἀπόληται ἀλλʼ ἔχῃ ζωὴν αἰώνιον.

that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life

The idea is to find other times that God will not allow something (not perish) but will have a continuous action for something good (have eternal life) 

I have tries syntax and clause searches and I get zero results.  

Thanks for your help!

As a Syntax Search I get 52 results with:

.

It includes Jn 3:16. Uses Cascadia "head term" to classify the clauses without getting to the Word level.

You can refine this with other morphological attributes and/or an Agreement between clauses.

EDIT:  specifying Present, Active for Clause 3 gives 3 results, incl. Jn 3.16.
